A lot of expectant mothers worry about travelling while pregnant. It’s true, there’s a lot to think about, but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea. In fact, taking a holiday while you’re pregnant can be a great way of getting the rest and relaxation you need, which will de-stress both you and your bump. In order to make it as easy as possible on your babymoon, there are a few life hacks you should know.
Trying to travel as lightly as possible will make the journey easier, by making your suitcase easy to wheel and avoid strain on your back. But with all the extras pregnancy demands (don’t forget your flight socks and those heartburn tablets) prioritising accessories and clothing can be hard.
One of the biggest dilemmas facing expectant and new mums when travelling is what to wear. When you’re pregnant, comfort is key. Breathable fabrics such as cotton and knits are ideal, to save you getting too hot and bothered. It’s also advisable to wear clothing with as few zips and fasteners as possible, as you’re likely to need regular trips to the bathroom.
Whether you’re pregnant or you’ve already had your baby, the clothing you’ll be the most thankful for when travelling are items that can be layered over one another. In pregnancy, layers are vital to help combat the sudden temperature changes that come with travelling. This is also the case when travelling with baby, plus the added advantage of being able to throw something over what you’re wearing to disguise any unexpected stains!
