From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

‘Babymoon has several meanings. The original meaning is a period of time that parents spend bonding with a recently-born baby.

More recently the term has come to be used to describe a vacation taken by a couple that is expecting a baby in order to allow the couple to enjoy a final trip together before the many sleepless nights that usually accompany a newborn baby. Babymoons usually take place at a resort that offers appropriate services like prenatal massage.

Babymoon can also be used for a trip taken by a couple even before they get pregnant. As long as the trip is intended to be a final romantic fling before venturing into parenthood, the term babymoon applies.

The term babymoon comes from the more traditional term honeymoon, which is a vacation taken by a newlywed couple after their wedding ceremony.’

When I was pregnant on my last holiday before children, the term Babymoon didn’t even exist and holiday resorts certainly didn’t cater for pregnant guests the way they are starting to now. I didn’t even think about the problems I would have just lying down to soak up the sun. Lying on my back was out of the question due to the weight of my tummy and also knowing that a baby turns away in the womb when subjected to bright light! Tummy lying was obviously impossible without digging a hole in the sand. I just needed a bed with a hole in it, and hey presto the holo was born! (scuse the pun!).

The holo really is a Babymoon essential and until the holiday resorts start providing their own for pregnant guests (working on this) I really would advise that you take a holo with you. You can use it on the sand, in the pool or just on the side. It really will make your holiday a more comfortable, relaxing time, exactly what you need before your baby arrives, I promise you!!!

Anyway, enjoy
