Babymoon - Wellness during pregnanc

Wellness for pregnant women can ensure a very special kind of time out during pregnancy. Whether with your partner, your best friend or alone: many mothers-to-be enjoy being really pampered during this special time. And pregnancy complaints can also be alleviated with Wellness during pregnancy. For most expectant parents, however, the focus is on a last getaway for just the two of them, a so-called babymoon in a wellness hotel.

What is a babymoon holiday?

A babymoon is a couple's last holiday before the child is born. Before the exciting time with the new family member, many pregnant women wish for a relaxing holiday with their loved one. After all, the baby soon turns the everyday life of the future parents upside down. No wonder that for many couples a Babymoon in a wellness hotel then offers the perfect escape. With a babymoon in a wellness hotel, the individual needs of the pregnant woman are the main focus. From special massages for expectant mothers to relaxing breaks with your partner in the spa: wellness for pregnant women means well-being for all the senses.

What does babymoon mean?

Many wellness hotels have therefore adapted to the babymoon and offer wellness packages for pregnant women that are specifically tailored to their needs. The name babymoon comes from America and stands for the last holiday before the birth of the first child. The name is derived from the English term for honeymoon. Similar to the honeymoon, the focus of the babymoon is the couple's togetherness. 
Wellness for pregnant women is very popular with the babymoon, because many mums-to-be do not want to travel too far during their pregnancy. Nevertheless, the babymoon should be longer than a day trip to the nearest spa. Wellness hotels, where special babymoon offers take place, can be found in the different regions all over Germany. Here, the future mothers can arrive with their partner or friends by car, for example, and do not have to make a long journey, but still experience a very special holiday with wellness for pregnant women.

Why wellness is useful for pregnant women

Wellness and relaxation during pregnancy - a dream for many pregnant women. Especially during this time they are exposed to many physical and mental changes. Typical pregnancy complaints like
- Nausea
- Mood swings
- Swollen feet and legs or
- Back pain
do not make life - even for the partner - any easier. A wellness break at the hotel, where a couple can enjoy some time together before the birth, comes in handy.

How can you book a Babymoon in Germany?

A babymoon can easily be booked on the Internet or by phone. Many pregnant women like to inform themselves on the internet about different offers. By browsing through the offers, they discover what is important for them during a wellness holiday and which wellness treatments they would like to experience. After choosing a wellness hotel, a telephone consultation with the reception of the spa makes sense. Here, the wellness guest can discuss application wishes with the spa staff and thus plan the desired, individual wellness treatment in advance. If everything is booked in advance, the wellness holiday can be expected to be relaxed - and anticipation is known to be the greatest pleasure.

What are the Best Places for a Babymoon in Germany?

From the seacoast to the mountain worlds, from the Babymoon in the Eifel to the wellness holiday in the Lusatian Lakeland: many wellness hotels in the regions of Germany offer wellness packages for pregnant women. Others even focus entirely on the topic of wellness for pregnant women. These create complete arrangements that are aimed at the needs of expectant mothers. When booking a wellness arrangement, offers such as a relaxing massage on special massage chairs, the "baby belly chairs", as well as a cosmetic facial treatment are already included. The motto here: Arrive at a wellness hotel in the Eifel, Sauerland or any other region in North Rhine-Westphalia, switch off from everyday life and simply let yourself be pampered.

Babymoon holidays in North Rhine-Westphalia

As close as possible, but still far away from everyday life: Many pregnant women do not want to travel far during their pregnancy. But a brief time in the thermal spa is not quite enough! Getting out of the city and into nature should be easy. Many wellness hotels in the various regions of North Rhine-Westphalia fulfil this wish for mums-to-be. Not far from cities on the Lower Rhine such as Düsseldorf or Cologne, there are numerous wellness hotels in idyllic natural surroundings, offering relaxing getaways before the arrival of the new family member. At the babymoon in North Rhine-Westphalia, pregnant women and their travel companions can experience the surrounding nature along the Rhine on excursions. And especially in North Rhine-Westphalia this is characterized by diversity. Hiking through the mountainous Sauerland with its many forests, cycling tours through the flat Münsterland or walks through heath or moorland landscapes: The colourful diversity invites you to discover nature. Especially in the Münsterland wellness enthusiasts can discover a lot. Back at the wellness hotel, after an active day in the Münsterland, wellness for pregnant women is the main focus. Pregnant women enjoy beneficial wellness treatments tailored to their needs at the Wellnesshotel in the Münsterland, dine with their loved ones at a romantic candlelight dinner, have a good night's sleep and simply enjoy the sweetness of doing nothing again.
  • Wellness for pregnant women in Sauerland

Far-reaching views over Sauerland meadows and pastures, hikes through colourful forests and a strange feeling of peace and quiet: this is what nature in the Sauerland feels like. It is understandable that pregnant women like to spend their babymoon here. However, besides excursions into nature, the wellness hotels in the Sauerland have much more to offer pregnant women. Soothing back and neck massages that relax the body stressed by pregnancy, or a cosmetic treatment that simply makes you feel good: wellness for pregnant women is very important in the Sauerland. Some wellness hoteliers in the region offer a belly cast or a photo shoot as a special highlight - and thus unforgettable memories of the pregnancy!

When is the ideal time for the Babymoon?

The best time for wellness during pregnancy is the second trimester. Before the twelfth and after the 32nd week of pregnancy you should refrain from certain wellness treatments in the hotel. This raises the question of which wellness treatments are appropriate for pregnant women at which time.

Babymoon Hotels: Enjoy wellness during pregnancy

In order to make the babymoon in the wellness hotel a complete success, it is essential to inform the hotel of your choice about the existing pregnancy in advance, so that the employees can adjust to the special situation and give the right recommendations for a successful babymoon. Expectant mothers are eager to take advantage of the following wellness offers, among others:
  • Wellness for pregnant women: Sauna visits

If the doctor is consulted beforehand and certain rules are followed, a visit to the sauna in the wellness hotel during pregnancy can be very beneficial. However, the temperature of the sauna should not be too high. Sauna bathing not only relaxes the muscles and strengthens the immune system, it also ensures that water accumulations in the tissue are flushed out more quickly through the alternation of heat and cold. However, you should have already started sauna bathing before the beginning of pregnancy, as the body is then accustomed to the temperature fluctuations.
  • Wellness for pregnant women: massages

Especially during pregnancy, gentle massages in a wellness hotel are beneficial for the tense muscles in the neck, back or hips. A massage also releases endorphins, which have a mood-lifting effect.
The massage can be performed in different positions, depending on your wishes. Either sitting or lying on your side. In some wellness hotels there are special massage tables with a hole for the baby's tummy.
An Ayurvedic back massage also releases blockages and tensions by massaging in warm herbal oil.
  • Wellness for pregnant women: Yoga

Yoga helps pregnant women to prepare themselves mentally and physically for the birth. The breathing techniques and stretching exercises improve flexibility and condition. Pregnancy complaints such as back pain and water retention are alleviated by yoga exercises and relaxation exercises help to find inner peace and serenity.
  • Wellness for pregnant women: Soothing baths

Wellness tourists can relax with all their senses during a soothing bath. Especially for pregnant women in the first months of pregnancy, baths can be adapted exactly to individual needs. While some baths have a relaxing effect by adding aromas and oils, for example, others have an activating effect and promote the regeneration of overstrained muscles. Also, the care of skin stressed during pregnancy is a popular reason for a soothing bath. A popular bath here is, for example, a whey-oil bath, which pregnant women can experience during a wellness holiday in the Sauerland.
