Taking a relaxing vacation during the second trimester before your baby is born is called a babymoon. It might be the last time in a few years to just go for a trip without much planning.
Here are five things you may want to consider before making any plans:
Travel by air: Check with your airline to be sure that you are allowed to fly. Most airlines don’t have a policy restricting flights for pregnant women during the second trimester, but some might request a medical certificate.
Activities: Remember that some activities can be dangerous for Your Baby . So, avoid physical activities that are strenuous, put you under enormous pressure, or expose you to a risk of falling.
Reduce stress: Your vacation should help you unwind and release stress. So, it may not be the best idea to go to a place that will stress you out, like a large polluted city or an adventurous place.
Food choice: Consider what you will be eating, whether it will benefit you and Your Baby . You don’t want to eat food you don’t think your body can handle or food that might make you sick.
Local healthcare: Wherever you go, don’t get too far away from a local hospital or clinic — in case you and your child’s needs an emergency medical care.
Whatever you decide, enjoy your babymoon or staycation!
