Moreover, one of our contributors will give you more reasons why you should travel even when pregnant. Let me know your thoughts!

If you’re pregnant for the first time – or even the fifth – you may decide to put all of your travel plans on hold. After all, traveling when pregnant is a big no-no, right? Wrong! 

In fact, there are plenty of reasons why you definitely should travel when you’re pregnant (provided you’re fit to do so!). Here are just five of them.

Why travel when pregnant

1. Time to relax

Being pregnant can definitely take its toll on the body – and the mind. Where possible, you should take as much time as you can to relax and put your feet up. Luckily, heading off on vacation can help you do just that.

As long as you pick the right time to go and the right destination, then traveling when pregnant is an ideal way to get some R & R. The second trimester tends to be the best time to travel, as you’re less likely to feel unwell and you aren’t too close to your due date.

2. Bonding together

You and your partner are soon to have your life flipped upside down, in the best possible way. It may be that you don’t get a date night for the first few months of your newborn being here, so it’s important to spend as much time together as possible before the baby is born.

Traveling somewhere new together will give you the chance to bond and fall in love all over again. It’s one of the reasons why babymoons have become so popular in recent years.

3. Seeing the world

There are so many different places to visit, cultures to experience, and food to dig into… why wouldn’t you want to travel? If you already had travel plans before you found out you were pregnant, then this definitely shouldn’t put you off. There are some things you might not be able to do, like go on roller coasters or eat certain foods, but there really is nothing holding you back from seeing the world just because you’re pregnant.

4. Making memories

Imagine explaining to your little one what kind of adventures they went on before they were even born! If you’re planning on traveling while pregnant, then consider putting together a scrapbook of all your trips and memories. Then, when your child is older, you can show them which parts of the world they visited before they were born. You can then add more photos and memories of the trips you make together as a family. What could be better than that?

5. Traveling before a newborn

Unless you’re planning on giving birth abroad (which is a fantastic thing to do, by the way), then you’re probably going to want to travel as much as possible before you have a newborn. While it’s not impossible to travel with a tiny baby, it’s good to squeeze in one more trip before they arrive.
