Do you have a baby on board and looking to plan one last trip as a twosome? If you’ve made it through your first trimester congratulations, it’s the best time for a babymoon! By now, you and your partner have thought about the day when the two of you become a blessed family of three. Taking a relaxing babymoon before the baby arrives has shown to have long-term relationship benefits because it gives you a chance at reconnecting before the dynamic changes. Relax and celebrate with one last hurrah before the baby enters your world. Since not every couple can afford a lavish getaway in a foreign country, these babymoon packages can fit nearly any budget. As a bonus, pampering is a key goal with each package so a mom-to-be (and dad-to-be) will feel like royalty at any of these locations. Strengthen your bond (and take a well-deserved break!) with these 10 budget-friendly babymoon destinations.

What Do You Do At A Babymoon?
A babymoon can include the activities you would generally enjoy during a vacation. Enjoy the sights—museums, food, culture—while taking care of the needs a pregnancy requires.
