Travel Trend: Baby Moons

Travel Trend: Baby Moons

You would assume from the name that a baby moon involves an actual baby, but it actually takes place during pregnancy! Baby moons are designed to be the final romantic escape with your partner before the baby arrives. Typically, they are taken within the second trimester when the mother is still able to fly, as most doctors would advise against taking flights after this time.

There are so many reasons why this getaway is often chosen. The Crane has put together four reasons why the baby moon is a rapidly growing travel trend.

Quality Time

Having a baby is a big decision which changes your entire family and relationship as you know it. Taking this time away in new surroundings can give you time to connect and prepare with each other so that when you leave, you’ll be more than ready to take on parenthood together.


When the baby is born, this part of your life will change dramatically, especially in the first few months, but it will be so worth it. In preparation for this, your baby moon can be a good opportunity to get in all the romance before the baby comes, to carry you through the initial months.


You might have heard the stories about how tiring parenting can be and when the baby is born, you will find yourselves facing many sleepless and tiring days and nights. You can put in all that extra rest on your getaway before the baby comes, so you can go back home feeling revitalized and ready.


While you’re away with very few distractions, this would be the perfect time to start making plans for the baby. You can decide on a name, discuss ideas for the nursery, a daily schedule and so many other things which you might not have had the time to discuss with each other before.

Are you expecting parents who want to get away to recharge before the baby arrives? Book your stay at The Crane Resort and we would be happy to help you make this an unforgettable experience for you.
