Tips For Travelling Mums To Be

With ‘babymoons’ on the rise and a whole host of glamorous, jet-setting celebrities including royalty expecting babies imminently, holidaying when you’re pregnant seems to be an inevitable, rite of passage for pregnant women. And with smelly nappies and sleepless nights on the horizon, it seems a sensible decision to seize the opportunity to have a romantic, restful break together, before a couple becomes a family.

Actually flying to the destination of choice can be the biggest hurdle of choice for pregnant women, what with travel sickness and morning sickness to contend with. It’s best to therefore travel once the morning sickness of early pregnancy has subsided (or pack ginger teabags – they work). However, try to go before the 36th week of pregnancy – to avoid having to get a doctor’s note for the flight. Another tip is to request an aisle seat for ease of access.

Winery tours and boozy, balmy evening meals might be a no-no, but alcohol-induced afternoons and late nights can be swapped for enjoying breakfast holiday-style. Start with a morning swim in the pool (nice and quiet before the night-owls are up), followed by a breakfast of fresh fruit juices, delicious banana pancakes, eggs of all varieties and other such treats to satiate a mother-to-be. Or for the ultimate relaxing start, order ‘womb service’ in bed! Likewise, you might not be able to jet ski or bungee jump, but who’d want to when there are spa baths, pre-natal massages, facials, pedicures and other pampering on the cards?

Some of the best places to slow down and truly relax are destinations such as Thailand and the Maldives for their high standard of accommodation, exceptional spa facilities, quiet nightlife (if any) and laid-back attitude. They also provide peace of mind for mothers-to-be who might be concerned about getting inoculations (there are none needed) or Malaria (they are both malaria-free countries). Try the untouched island of Koh Chang in the Gulf of Thailand, for absolute peace and quiet – it’s like the Thailand of 20 years ago!  However, the Caribbean is also proving to be a really popular destination for celebrity mothers to be, with both Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian recently choosing to relax on the exclusive island of Mustique.
