Pregnancy is a happy yet tough time for sure! That too when all the dear ones are pampering and guarding your every step, it is hard to get some space. In all this chaos, fitting travel is a big thing and slightly risky as it involves your bundle of joy.
Still, there is no rule that pregnant women shouldn't travel; they just have to be fit to do so. Usually, the second trimester is considered as the best time for journeys.
Of course, going to a hill station or hiking is not an option at all for a babymoon. Beaches seem to be pretty safer for trips during pregnancy. So, we bring you some beautiful babymoon beach destinations in India.
Check with your doctor and head to any of these babymoon destinations in India!

Simple Tips For Babymoon
- Please consult your doctor before planning a trip. Check whether you are fit enough for a travel at this time.
- Choose a place which has good medical facilities. And note down emergency medical care numbers in case you need them during the trip.
- Many airlines have strict regulations for pregnant passengers. Usually, you have to provide a letter from your doctor or midwife to state your health condition to take flights. Check out these rules and regulations before booking flights.
- Do not choose long journeys (road journeys). Choose places that are considerably near to the place where you stay.
- Don't travel to malaria-hit places or any disease hit places. Pregnant women are prone to viruses. So do a thorough check before planning.
Have a happy babymoon!
