What are the top babymoon destinations? These are the places that expectant parents visit, knowing that with a little one on the way, they probably won't have time to see for several years. A Babymoon is a time for soon-to-be parents to relax, regroup and ready themselves for all that parenting requires. This list includes some of the greatest places to have a babymoon, offering expectant couples the chance to enjoy a little peace, quiet and tranquility before their new baby arrives. Be sure to vote for your favorite Babymoon vacation spots, and add your own personal favorites.

Often, top babymoon vacation spots overlap with some of the most popular and best honeymoon destinations. The best babymoon destinations for pregnant couples may depend, at least in part, on how far along a woman is in her pregnancy. If she's close to term, a couple might opt to Babymoon closer to home. Jetting off to Bora Bora, for example, might not be the best plan if the due date is closing in.

Some couples crave relaxing beach getaways for a Babymoon, while others might enjoy the cultural offerings of major cities. Either way, a Babymoon is an excellent way to enjoy one last romantic getaway before their child is born.

FYI: If you're planning this kind of trip, keep in mind that some hotels and resorts actually offer special babymoon packages!
