What makes a relaxing Babymoon in Noosa

What is a babymoon? No, it’s not the full moon shape of your tummy when you’re in your third trimester! It’s a holiday you take with your partner when your tummy is in full bloom with a baby bump.

It’s the last break you get together before your baby is born, the sleep-deprived nights stack up, and your bundle of joy needs constant care. It’s also time to relax and enjoy time together as a couple in a special place before you become three or more.

So what do you do on a babymoon? Here are our suggestions for how to spend your last holiday as a couple, when the mum-to-be may feel tired but you both still want to have fun on a special Babymoon in Noosa.

Activities that are geared around relaxation, or things you know you’re not going to be able to do together on future holidays with a baby, are exactly what you should do on a babymoon.

1. Late Breakfast and Romantic Evenings

On your babymoon, you may be just heading out for a lazy breakfast and coffee but you should make the most of enjoying a hot coffee as you won’t get many of them once the baby arrives… but you will get used to drinking lukewarm coffee!

Make the most of romantic dinners, holding hands over a table or long relaxing lunches at a restaurant as this is one experience you won’t be having after the baby arrives, and sleep becomes more important than eating out. While your diet may be slightly limited during pregnancy, restaurants commonly cater to pregnancy requirements and it’s wonderful to have someone else cook and clean for you. One of the best tips for a couple expecting their first baby is to buy a slow cooker, it’s almost as good as having someone cook for you.

2. Spending time in nature

Going to the beach, swimming and walking are all perfect activities during pregnancy to help keep the body moving during the last stage of pregnancy. In Noosa, the sea temperature rarely drops below 23 degrees so you can swim all year and baby bumps love to cool off and float in the water. Fresh air and being in nature is a calming, nurturing way to unwind.

3. Day Spa visit in a double room

Babymoons are a popular time to get pampered with a massage, facial or foot treatment. Massages for mums-to-be are a necessity as a relaxed Mumma is best for Bubba and dads-to-be need them too. It’s a stressful waiting game when the baby’s due date is coming up, and a big change for both of you. There are many pregnancy-safe treatments but the most popular are massage, facials and foot treatments such as pedicures.

Massage is important during pregnancy as it has been proven that a relaxed mum-to-be during pregnancy is an advantage to the baby’s developmental growth once born and it also helps relieve tension in the areas on the body that are under pressure from carrying the weight of a baby.

Facials are a way of calming, rejuvenating and renewing your skin and while people think that facials cause ‘breakout’ it’s a thing of the past as skincare products and procedures are completely different from what they used to be and are more likely to leave you feeling and looking refreshed instantly. Facials also create the deepest relaxation and are perfect pre-birth photo preparation for those first Mum, Dad and bub photos.

Pedicures and foot treatments are a must during pregnancy and it’s a relaxing way to rejuvenate tired feet when you’re on a babymoon as you can’t reach your toes with that baby bump in the way, and feet often swell in the last trimester. Foot treatments and head massages are popular for dads-to-be too and, if you have a treatment together, he may pick up a few massage ideas to do on you when you get home!

4. Sleeping in

Having a sleep in sounds like something you can do at home, but not for long. When the baby arrives, everyone will be up before dawn! You’ll feel like half the day is over by 10 am when you’ve been up early with a baby. A nap or putting your feet up in the afternoon is the perfect way to spend time together and watching a movie in the afternoon is something that you can’t do easily with a baby so make the most of your babymoon.

5. Shopping for Baby Gifts

Picking up a souvenir for yourselves or the baby’s room is a fun way to remember your babymoon together, especially if you visit a place that means a lot to both of you.

Many couples who got engaged or married in Noosa, visit again for their babymoon, and will no doubt be back for family holidays with their baby.
