Everyone knows what a honeymoon is, but now there's the babymoon. What exactly is a babymoon, you might wonder? It's a word coined due to the increasing number of couples who decide to take a vacation right before baby arrives – as sort of a last “hurrah” before parenthood. Babymoons typically refer to trips taken in the second and third trimester of a couple's pregnancy. And it's not necessarily a marketing gimmick from the travel industry. According to a research study done by Liberty Travel, nearly 60% of expectant couples surveyed took a planned trip before baby's arrival. So if you're thinking about planning that last getaway before baby's arrival, you're in good company.
