Little known fact: Somewhere before "then comes baby in a baby carriage," a line went missing. Though the exact wording is unknown, we think it went something like: "then comes Mom and Dad's last hurrah someplace fabulous." And thus was born the babymoon.
When to go?
While the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists deems flying safe during healthy pregnancies (with the second trimester generally considered safest), no expectant mom wants to be eight time zones and three layovers away from her ob-gyn. Yours -- of course -- should have the final word on any travel you do now.
Jumby Bay, Antigua, West Indies
While the aqua expanse separating this island from Antigua takes only eight minutes to cross by boat, you'll feel like you're entering a different time zone -- if not dimension -- by the time you land at Jumby Bay. Occupied by a single resort of the same name, a handful of vacation homeowners and countless hawksbill turtles, the place is preternaturally quiet, intimate, and gorgeous. And though the in-room pregnancy massage wins raves, it's almost redundant given the tension-melting effects of the local air, water, and ubiquitous smiles -- particularly radiant and approving at the sight of a bikini-exposed bump.
