Adding a new member to the family is an equally exciting and stressful time for parents-to-be, so it’s only natural to want to fit in some R&R before the joyful chaos that is parenthood.

Enter the babymoon – an excuse for expectant parents to get away, spend some quality time together and enjoy a little pampering before names officially change to mum and dad.

Babymoons are all about relaxation, so this is one time you can skip the adrenaline-pumping vacay and go straight to the massage table.

Whether you’re looking for a cosy cool-climate escape or sunny beachside resort, there are plenty of options to choose from.

WHERE TO STAY

QUALIA: Hamilton Island, QLD

Hidden away from the popularity of Hamilton Island, tucked into its northern-most tip, Qualia is surrounded by tropical bushland and the crystal clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Enjoy a romantic dinner cooked by Executive Chef Doug Innes-Will and find pure tranquillity in the resort’s Spa Qualia where the sea breeze will carry any tension away.

MATAKAURI LODGE: Queenstown, NZ

Those seeking something different than a sand-and-salt holiday can opt to retreat to the cooler climates of New Zealand. Overlooking the serene views of Lake Wakatipu, the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Walter Peak, Matakauri makes for the perfect setting to dine on exquisite cuisine and sip non-alcoholic wine (yep, it exists) by the warmth of a fireplace.

PARADISE COVE: Yasawa Islands, Fiji

Champagne sands and sapphire waters are calling you to Paradise Cove on Fiji’s Naukacuvu Island. Walk straight from your five-star villa into the azure waters, spend your days lounging in a shady hammock, or take a more adventurous approach to your babymoon with activities like kayaking or snorkelling.

BABYMOON TIPS

∙ Health professionals recommend travelling in the second trimester
∙ Drink plenty of water, wear support stockings and walk regularly to avoid health issues like deep vein thrombosis
∙ Avoid picking a journey that requires long periods of sitting (like Europe or the USA)
∙ Opting for a destination closer to home eliminates complications with vaccinations, contaminated food and water, and medical care.
