Lauren Turner had never heard of a "babymoon." But she did notice a "pregnancy package" offered several weeks ago by Bonne Terre Country Inn in Nesbit, Miss.
Nick and Lauren Turner decided on a name for their child during their babymoon.
"I just had to get away from the house," she said," and I knew I couldn't travel far" because she was two months from her due date. She and her husband, Nick, booked it and found it a smart decision.
Babymoons have been a travel trend for several years, according to Frommer's, the vacation guide publisher, even though the term is unfamiliar to many. It is generally defined as a last chance for parents-to-be to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect before life is overrun with diaper bags and sippy cups. A babymoon can also be taken after the baby is born as a time to bond with the infant.
