Arora Valley answered:
A "babymoon" -- a vacation you take with your spouse before your bundle of joy arrives -- might just be the best thing you can do to prepare for parenting. With a cutely named babymoon, it is also a chance to celebrate the coming of the first child. You may not need to take a break overseas to enjoy it. Many hotels in Singapore are picking up on the trend, offering babymoon room packages. If you prefer to fly overseas do follow some tips. Tips for mums to be- *Before you book your babymoon, talk to your preferred airline to find out what their travel policies for expectant moms are. *Avoid travelling on long flights that last more than five hours if you are over 32 weeks pregnant, and try to avoid flying after 36 weeks. *How close is the nearest hospital in case you go into labor unexpectedly? It probably won't happen, but if it does you should be close enough to a hospital that you can get care. *Expectant mothers travelling on planes could wear pressure stockings, move their legs regularly to boost circulation and avoid alcohol. *If you are thinking of a spa massage, beware that massaging the tummy can cause contractions and is best avoided.

Sharon answered:
Maldives may be a bit tough for you considering the change from plane to ferry etc, while lugging luggages around. Besides, it won't be much fun for you if you are not able to do any of the water sports and all you can do is sit around on the beach. Australia is great especially if your hubby drives and you can just rest in the car (we all know lugging around the weight of a watermelon is no joke!). On a road trip, you can stop anytime either of you are tired, and you can travel at your own pace. Plus, the weather is great for expectant mothers cos our temperature is up by 1-2 degrees. We went to Melbourne for my baby moon, and I think it was really the best choice we could have made. :) If you like beaches, you can head for Gold Coast.

Aayummii answered:
I was having bad seasickness when I took an hr ferry ride from HK to Macau. Wouldn't want to take the risk of traveling on a ferry for my baby moon. I think the plane works better for me. If u have decided to travel on a ferry, may want to consider taking the seats in the middle as it is not so bumpy. All the best

Sonia answered:
My point is the same as Jenny. Yes, a cruise. A gd place to relax. You don't have to do a lot of walking. No traveling. 24hrs food available. Minutes walk to the cabin. You can get to see sun rise & sun set. Heard that expected woman are very lucky on the gamble table, hmm... U can give it a try to win some money for diapers! :p

Jacqueline answered:
Dear Mummies, there is a report on Babymoon in Today's papers (18/4/13). Do take a look if you are planning for one. I would strongly recommend for Babymoon if your gynae gives the thumbs-up becasue it would be a long while after you deliver that you can go for a holiday especially if you are breastfeeding.

Lynette answered:
Maldives is a really nice place. Nearer to home would be Bintan, Batam, Hong Kong, Taiwan, or even Malaysia. If you want less hassle, going on a cruise like what Jenny suggested would be good too! Accommodation, food & entertainment all are provided.

oink17 answered:
It really depends on what you like to do on your babymoon. Do you want to relax in a resort or plan to walk, see, eat and shop? I had my babymoon in Bintan ClubMed, not too far from Singapore (in case i have any emergency). I just laze around in the pool, with a book and people watch. Very relaxing though i cannot take part in any of the activities. The staff there were super attentive when they saw my baby bump. Some of my friends went to Hong Kong to shop for post-natal clothes!

April answered:
I went to Batam for babymoon as I did not want to take the plane. I think Bintan is another nice location if you do not want to take aeroplane. I was worried about the pressure in the plane will cause harm to my fetus.
