The Best Babymoon Destinations in the Mountains

Many people hear the word “babymoon” and immediately think “beach.” After all, relaxing on the bluffs of Cabo San Lucas or in your overwater bungalow in the Maldives does sound pretty great… but sometimes, and depending on the time of year you decide to travel, a cozy week just the two of you in the mountains is just what the doctor ordered!

You know I love any excuse to travel and celebrate life’s big milestones (Kenny and I actually went on three trips before a baby that we considered our “babymoon”… one to Cabo, one to Maui, and one to Anguilla!). Although I chose three tropical destinations for my own babymoons, I love the idea of a cozy mountain babymoon! There are tons of incredible spots in the mountains that would be perfect for celebrating your last trip before baby, and these are my top picks.

The Best Mountain Babymoon Destinations in the U.S.

Park City, Utah

Park City is a skier’s paradise in the winter, but it is also a fantastic place for a babymoon year-round! I visited Park City earlier this year, and I can’t believe we didn’t go sooner!

St. Regis Deer Valley

This is where Kenny, Harrison, and I stayed while visiting Park City. As you would expect from any St. Regis property, our stay was nothing short of spectacular! Located in Deer Valley, this hotel offers incredible views, top-notch service, and unparalleled mountain luxury. 

Waldorf Astoria Park City

Another great choice in Park City that is slightly further from downtown than what you’ll find in Deer Valley, but well worth the extra 5 – 10 minutes in the car! I have a good friend who just babymooned here, and she and her husband loved it. They have a renowned spa, a nice pool that is heated to a comfortable 82 degrees year-round, and s’mores offered nightly around their many firepits! Talk about a cozy mountain experience.

Montage Deer Valley

This five-star hotel calls itself “an elevated alpine escape,” and I couldn’t have said it better myself! The rooms at the Montage Deer Valley were just recently redesigned, and I love the color palette they chose! The darker greens and wood seem to bring the outside beauty of Park City in, and the specialty suites look as if they are fit for royalty.

Where to Eat in Park City on Your Babymoon

Riverhorse on Main – Photo courtesy of Forbes Travel Guide

Riverhorse on Main

Riverhorse on Main is an award-winning fine-dining establishment, making it the perfect celebratory dinner spot on your babymoon in Park City! As the name suggests, Riverhorse on Main is located right on Main Street. Note that this is an upscale restaurant, so smart casual dress is required.


This restaurant used to be a boarding house, but now, it’s a classic Italian joint with panoramic views! Grappa is only open for dinner from 5:00 – 9:00 PM (except for Fridays and Saturdays when they are open until 10:00 PM), so keep that in mind when making plans.

Yuki Yama Sushi

I know most pregnant mamas stay away from sushi spots altogether, but there are still plenty of rolls you can indulge in that are perfectly safe for baby! The main thing to remember with sushi is that you can’t have anything raw or undercooked. So as long as you order something fully cooked (or vegetarian), you’re good to go here!

Cortona Italian Cafe

This cozy, traditional Italian spot makes all its pasta from scratch, so no matter what you order, you really can’t go wrong! I’ve heard the four-layer lasagna and potato gnocchi are to die for. And if you have room for dessert, you have to get the homemade gelato!

Go on a Ski Lift Chair Ride

In the winter, Park City is known for its superb skiing. In the warmer months, however, those ski lifts are still in use for tourists and locals to explore the area in the air! This is an easy, safe activity for a pregnant mama.

See the Scenery in a Hot Air Balloon

I think this is truly beautiful and enjoyable year-round, but especially in the fall if you happen to babymoon then!

Enjoy a Spa Day

A spa day is the ultimate babymoon activity no matter where you are. I highly recommend the spa in either St. Regis or Waldorf Astoria!! 

Explore Main Street

Main Street in Park City has soooo much to do and see. From boutique shopping to art galleries to cafes, you could spend an entire day or two here!

Go on a Scenic Drive

If you are visiting in the fall, you have to take a scenic drive in and around Park City! Some of the best scenic drives can be found here

Aspen, Colorado

You guys know I looooove Aspen! It is such a chic mountain town with so much to offer its visitors. I have an entire post dedicated to Aspen (and Vail!), but here are the highlights for your babymoon!

Where to Stay in Aspen for Your Babymoon

Hotel Jerome, Auberge Resorts Collection

If I could choose just one hotel to recommend in Aspen, it would be Hotel Jerome!!! This place is so special. There is no other hotel in Aspen that gives the historic, luxury-meets-wild experience that Hotel Jerome does to its visitors! Since 1889, Hotel Jerome has been leading Aspen in luxury accommodations. Trust me, if you stay here, you will not be disappointed!

St. Regis Aspen

Photo courtesy of Five Star Alliance

If there is a St. Regis in the area, I am always going to recommend it! Staying at a St. Regis is always a good idea no matter the location. This hotel will be undergoing renovations during October and November of 2023, so if you stay there after that time period, you will get a new and upgraded experience!

The Little Nell

Photo courtesy of The Little Nell

Aspen gives major see-and-be-seen vibes, and The Little Nell is the epitome of this when it comes to Aspen accommodations. The views are breathtaking, the rooms are beautifully designed and newly refurbished, and the amenities will have you forgetting you are in Colorado in the best way!

J Bar at Hotel Jerome – Photo courtesy of Conde Nast Traveler

J Bar at Hotel Jerome

Even if you don’t stay at Hotel Jerome, you have to book a reservation for dinner at J Bar!!! This place has great cocktails (and mocktails for mama!), plus incredible American cuisine (including the best burgers in town!).

Casa Tua

This Italian chalet-style restaurant is the cutest!! Rustic, but elegant, and oh-so-delicious Italian food. Yum!

Home Team BBQ

One of my absolute favorite barbecue spots in Charleston, Home Team has ONE other location – at the base of Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen. If you’re looking for a meaty, comforting meal, this is your spot.

Go Shopping in Downtown Aspen

Aspen is full of boutiques and shops that you will definitely want to stop in while you are there!

Make a Custom Hat at Kemo Sabe

If you have seen the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, then you know this is one of Kyle Richards’ favorite spots in Aspen! Kemo Sabe sells high-end western wear that is perfect for Aspen, but their claim to fame is their custom Stetson hats! This is such a fun activity for you and your partner to do to commemorate your babymoon in Aspen.

Get a Spa Treatment

According to Trip Advisor, the best spas in Aspen can be found at St. Regis, Hotel Jerome, and Ritz-Carlton, so I highly suggest booking a treatment or two at one of these places!

Experience the Art Scene

It may be surprising to some, but Aspen is known for their art scene! They have a host of smaller galleries as well as a museum (the Aspen Art Museum), so if you are looking for something relaxing to do indoors, go here!

Ride the Silver Queen Gondola

Like Park City, Aspen offers gondola rides in the warmer months via the Silver Queen Gondola. Such a great way to see the sights from above!

Asheville, North Carolina

Omni Grove Park Inn

The best of the best can be found at the Omni Grove Park Inn! This hotel has hosted five U.S. Presidents, and its spa is top-of-the-line. 

The Inn at Biltmore

The Inn at Biltmore was designed for you to experience the way the Vanderbilts lived, which is quite an experience indeed! If you don’t stay here, you at least have to visit the estate for a tour (see more below!). This property is beyond stunning – the views are simply to die for!

The Greystone Inn

If you are looking to go the boutique hotel route, book at The Greystone Inn!

Where to Eat in Asheville for Your Babymoon

Cúrate – Photo courtesy of Explore Asheville


Cúrate is one of the restaurants that put the Asheville food scene on the map! From James Beard-nominated chef Katie Button, this Spanish tapas bar makes you feel like you‘ve been transported to Madrid or Barcelona.

Cucina 24

Cucina 24 combines Italian traditions with ingredients sourced from nearby farms and forests. The pasta is made fresh in-house daily, so you know it’s good! If everything on the menu sounds too good and you just can’t choose, go with the “what we’re cooking” option, which is a five-course tasting menu!

Sovereign Remedies

This is the perfect spot for interesting yet approachable cocktails (and mocktails!) and farm-fresh modern plates.

French Broad Chocolate Lounge

Okay, where are all of my sweets-craving mamas?! I had to include this dessert spot on my list of places to eat in Asheville. French Broad Chocolate Lounge has delectable artisan truffles, silky smooth sipping chocolate, and THE BEST three-layer chocolate cake ever!

Hike to Catawba Falls

If you aren’t too far along and are still feeling pretty active, I highly recommend a hike up to Catawba Falls! This 2.7-mile round-trip hike follows the river to the base of a beautiful moss-covered waterfall that is simply picturesque.

Drive Along the Blue Ridge Highway

Speaking of picturesque, when in Asheville, you have to drive along the Blue Ridge Highway! This road spans 469 miles from North Carolina to Virginia with some of the most breathtaking views. Spend half a day driving the highway, and feel free to stop for a picnic somewhere along the way!

Visit the Biltmore Estate

This is a must-do in Asheville. The Biltmore Estate can be a bit crowded and is a little touristy, but it is 100% worth visiting! The estate, built by George Vanderbilt in 1889, is the largest privately owned home in the United States (approximately 179,000 square feet!!!!). It contains more than 250 rooms, 43 bathrooms (!!!), multiple kitchens, an indoor swimming pool, and even a bowling alley!

The house opens at 9 AM, so be sure to get there early to beat the crowds and secure close parking.

Experience Shoji Spa

The top spa I would recommend in Asheville would be the Japanese Shoji Spa! This spa is self-admittedly unpretentious, so if you are looking for a truly luxurious experience, you may want to go to the spa at the Omni Grove Park Inn instead. But if you are one who loves a unique, relaxing, otherly-worldly spa experience, this is for you.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Four Seasons Jackson Hole

Amangani is an Aman Resort located in the foothills of the Tetons. At this hotel, you will feel as though you have been transported to another time – the simple, yet intricate design of this hotel helps you better appreciate all that the Western lifestyle has to offer!

Il Villagio Osteria

Fine Italian dining in the heart of Teton Village. Need I say more?!

Local Restaurant & Bar

The name may be simple, but the food is far from it! If you are one who is dying to try perfectly prepared Jackson Hole wild game, go here!

Snake River Grill

Often rated the best dinner in Jackson Hole, Snake River Grill is one of those restaurants you simply cannot miss! They just celebrated 25 years, and according to both locals and tourists, their food continues to get better and better.

Go on a Guided Wildlife Tour

If you want to see bison, elk, bears, and other wildlife in Jackson Hole, go on a guided wildlife tour! For more information, visit the Jackson Hole website.

Visit a National Park

Jackson Hole is surrounded by not one, but two incredible national parks – Yellowstone and Grand Teton! If you are feeling up to it and your OB approves, you should definitely explore one (or both) of these parks while you are in town.

Go on a Romantic Sleigh Ride

In the winter months, you can book a romantic sleigh ride in Jackson Hole! I highly recommend booking through the National Elk Refuge – it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Sleigh rides are typically offered from December – April!

See the Sights on a Gondola or Tram Ride

Not up for hiking? No problem! You can still see the beautiful mountains on a gondola or tram.

Shop the Boutiques

I recommend shopping at Accentuate, Altitude, Habits Jackson Hole, and Western Range Clothing Co. Oh, and don’t forget to take a photo under the Instagram-famous elk antler arch in the town square!

Relax at the Spa

If you are looking for a relaxing spa day in Jackson Hole, head to the spa at Four Seasons!

Big Sky, Montana

Without contest, the best place to stay in Big Sky, Montana is at the Montage! This hotel is framed by Montana’s Spanish Peaks mountain range and is where modern design meets alpine charm.

Block 3 Kitchen & Bar

This restaurant is rather new, but it is sure to check all the boxes you have on your list! Block 3 Kitchen & Bar is a Montana-style chophouse serving up some of the best dishes in all of Big Sky.


The best way to describe Cortina is this: traditional Italian cuisine meets local flare. Cortina focuses on seasonality and sourcing local ingredients, including just-harvested produce, heritage chops, local game, and river fish!

Shop Downtown

Big Sky offers diverse local stores, many of which feature Montana-made products! You can acquire everything from handcrafted jewelry to art to novelty knickknacks and chic decor. And remember, Montana has no sales tax, so feel free to remind your husband of that when you are shopping til you drop! 😉

Treat Yourself at Solace Spa & Salon

Big Sky Resort hosts Solace Spa & Salon, one of the most well-known spas in Montana. Here you can receive massages, facials, body treatments, and so much more!

Visit the Historic Crail Ranch Homestead

For those of you who are interested in what it was like for the first settlers of Big Sky (think Yellowstone’s “1883” spinoff) – this one’s for you! The Crail Ranch Homestead is full of Montana history dating all the way back to the time when only Native Americans called Big Sky home. History buffs can tour the 1902 homestead of the Crail family, who were one of the first families to settle in Big Sky.

Jam Out at Music in the Mountains

If you happen to be visiting anytime between July and September, enjoy free live music at Music in the Mountains hosted by the Arts Council of Big Sky! This begins at 6 PM each Thursday on Center Stage at Town Center Park.

Lake Tahoe, California

Lake Tahoe is one of the top ski destinations in the U.S., but it has so much more to offer than powdery slopes and aprés ski!

Where to Stay in Lake Tahoe for Your Babymoon

The Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe

If you’re interested in staying near Heavenly on the south side of Tahoe, the Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe was ranked Travel & Leisure’s number one rated hotel in the continental U.S., and it is not hard to see why! This spectacular lakeside lodge embodies modern mountain luxury – from its 154 luxury rooms and suites (each boasting its own cozy gas fireplace and private terrace), to its three delicious restaurants and jaw-dropping lobby set amongst the pines, to its beautiful outdoor pool & incredible spa, Edgewood‘s effortless marriage of luxury, serenity, and fun is what sets it apart in Lake Tahoe.

There’s no way you can leave a trip to Tahoe without visiting this staple.

Enjoy some of their famous fried zucchini sticks and ranch and one of their many delish mocktails and enjoy the gorgeous view.

Gar Woods

Gar Woods is similar to Sunnyside with its gorgeous lakeside property and outdoor pier dining.

Chamber’s Landing is located on a stretch of beach complete with a bar on the pier that is always crowded with tons of people. This restaurant has a modern elegance to it and some of the best seafood in Tahoe!

Book a Sailing Cruise on the Lake

Lake Tahoe is known for its crystal-clear waters, so be sure to experience all that this pristine lake has to offer by booking a two-hour sailing cruise!

Rent a Clear Kayak or Paddleboard

Another great way to get on the water is by renting a clear bottom kayak or stand-up paddleboard. This activity is for those who are still able to move about freely and easily, so consult with your doctor before booking this!

Take a Hot Air Balloon Ride Over the Lake

Hot air balloon rides are so romantic, especially over a place as beautiful as Lake Tahoe!

Book a Helicopter Tour

Want to see the lake from a birds-eye view without having to take the risk of riding in a hot air balloon? Book this helicopter tour instead!

La Marmotte

La Marmotte has been a Telluride favorite for more than 30 years, so you know it’s good! This French-inspired restaurant is housed in an 1893 ice-house building with exposed brick walls and wood-beamed ceilings. In the winter months, you can even dine outdoors in their igloos!

221 South Oak

221 South Oak is located in a refurbished historic home close to the gondola. This is an intimate, casual spot, so don’t expect too much when it comes to its design. However, what you can expect is a unique and inventive menu created by Chef Eliza Gavin of Top Chef season 10!


Dine inside Cosmopolitan’s rustic-style dining room or enjoy dinner on the expansive wood deck under the stars. Their seasonal menu includes choices of charred asparagus, crispy shrimp and calamari, lamb, salmon, and more! Be sure to leave room for their Wild Maine Blueberry Pie. Sooooo good!

Chop House Restaurant offers steak, seafood, and more in an environment full of tradition and history. You really can’t go wrong ordering here, but be sure to add a side of the parmesan truffle fries no matter what you get as your entrée!

Explore Historic Downtown Telluride

Telluride has one of those cute, historic downtowns that is just too adorable not to explore! Stop at a cafe for some decaf coffee or tea, pop into Telluride’s local boutiques, or find a bite to eat for lunch on Main Street.

Get Spooky on a Ghost Town Tour

Admittedly, ghost tours aren’t really my thing, but if you feel like getting spooky, visit one of Telluride’s ghost towns!

Go Fly Fishing

As long as you go with a guide and clear it with your OB beforehand, fly fishing can be a fun and relaxing pregnancy-friendly activity in Telluride!

Enjoy a Spa Day

Ahhhh, the spa. Did you even go on a babymoon if you didn’t book a spa day?! In Telluride, you should visit the spa at Madeline Hotel or Elements 52.

Sedona, Arizona

Where to Stay on Your Babymoon in Sedona

Enchantment Resort

We stayed at Enchantment Resort when we visited Sedona, and we loved everything about it!!! It’s located right at the base of Boynton Canyon, which makes it the ideal location in Sedona. You can hike right from the resort if you are feeling up for it! Or, you can relax poolside, or head to their award-winning spa, which is one of the best in the world. Plus, the rooms here are gorgeous, complete with fireplaces and stunning views of the red rocks. 

Where to Eat on Your Babymoon in Sedona



WOW this restaurant needs to be on everyone’s Sedona list. It blew us away! It has a modern-Argentinian steakhouse flare, and the ambiance is second-to-none in Sedona. Go at sunset to see the GORGEOUS red rock mountain views right outside the restaurant. And be sure to order the empanadas and the goddess salad – it was so good we ordered a second! For our entree, we did the ribeye and it was to. die. for. Can’t recommend highly enough.


Elote is located right on Main Street in Sedona so it makes for a great dinner after you’ve shopped around Main Street for crystals (or get your palms read by a psychic!). Elote is an award-winning modern Mexican & Southwestern restaurant, with a focus on local ingredients, and it’s widely known as being one of the best places for dinner in Sedona.

Dahl & DiLuca 

From the same chef/owner as Mariposa, Dahl & DiLuca is an Italian eatery in Sedona that you guys will love! Think: romantic, cozy Italian food done RIGHT. 

What to do on Your Babymoon in Sedona

You won’t be able to do all of the best hikes in Sedona being pregnant, but I do recommend Subway Cave or Bell Rock Trail! More about the best hikes in Sedona (and how to do them right) in this post.

Lean Into Sedona’s Healing Powers

Sedona is known for its healing energy, so don’t be afraid to go all-in when you’re here! I highly recommend a spa day at Enchantment Resort focused on healing your body from the inside out.

Such a romantic and calming thing to do with your partner! And it’s totally free. More info here

The Best Mountain Babymoon Destinations Around the World

Looking for an adventure outside of the U.S.? Here are the best mountain babymoon destinations around the world!

Swiss Alps, Switzerland

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love Switzerland!!! It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and is the ultimate mountain destination IMO. If you want to truly immerse yourself in the Swiss mountain culture, stay up in one of the small towns in the Alps!

Where to Stay in Switzerland for Your Babymoon

Badrutt’s Palace Hotel

Travel & Leisure named Badrutt’s Palace Hotel its top editor’s choice of accommodations in Switzerland. But don’t just take their word for it – anyone who has stayed here will tell you just how luxurious this property truly is! Think indoor infinity pools, fireplace-filled hideaways, and Rolls-Royce transfers (yes, really!). This place is like something out of a fairytale!!!

The Dolder Grand

Even if you have never been to Switzerland, you have probably heard or seen photos of Lake Zurich. Lucky for you, The Dodler Grand sits right on this famous lake! This hotel boasts an expansive spa and impressive art collection and even offers free BMW rentals to its guests.

The Chedi Andermatt

Andermatt is a sleepy ski village in the heart of the Swiss Alps. If you are looking for modern luxury with a warm and inviting vibe, stay at The Chedi Andermatt!

Take a Cruise on the Lakes

A lake cruise is the perfect way to spend a day in Switzerland. Switzerland is home to thousands of charming lakes, but the top ones I would recommend booking a cruise on would be Lake Geneva, Lake Zurich, Lake Lucerne, or Lake Brienz.

Visit the Christmas Villages

If you are lucky enough to be visiting Switzerland during the holidays, you must go to the Christmas Villages! Switzerland’s Christmas Villages are known around the world for their magical atmosphere. Each market offers live entertainment, great food, yummy drinks (non-alcoholic, of course!), and more!

Take the Train

Switzerland is well connected by train networks, and even if you have no destination in mind, it’s worth it to hop on the train and explore the beautiful countryside! If you want to make a day of it, take the Glacier Express on a panoramic eight-hour journey through the Swiss Alps.

Discover Old Towns

Like all European countries, Switzerland is full of towns that have kept their historical features intact. I highly recommend visiting Zurich, Bern (the capital of Switzerland), and Geneva to name a few.

Enjoy Swiss Chocolate and Cheese

I mean, how could you possibly visit Switzerland without enjoying its chocolate and cheese?! Visit a chocolate factory (I recommend Lindt’s!), order fondue at every restaurant… go nuts!

Visit Rhine Falls

Rhine Falls is located on the border of Switzerland and Germany and is quite a sight to be seen. This giant waterfall is one of Europe’s largest and is a landmark you simply have to see in person.

Banff, Canada

Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

For me, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise tops the list of places to stay in Banff. This stunning, five-star hotel leaves no stone unturned when it comes to luxury. And the VIEWS… I can’t get over it! So stunning!!

Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel

Another beautiful Fairmont property in Banff is the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. This four-star hotel is set perfectly on the mountainside and offers great dining, a spa, and a championship golf course for those who would enjoy a round or two on their babymoon.

Ride the Banff Gondola

The Banff Gondola will take you on a two-hour ride over six different mountain ranges. IMO, this is the perfect way to see the sights with minimal effort! 

See the Northern Lights

Banff is one of the best places to see the Milky Way and Northern Lights! Check the forecast to make sure it is a clear night, then head somewhere like Two Jack Lake to try to catch a spectacular show. If you specifically want to see the Aurora Borealis, check Aurora Watch to see if it will be possible during your visit!

Enjoy the Alpenglow Festival

“Alpenglow” refers to the tops of the mountains turning red just after sunset – a sight that is absolutely breathtaking in person! The festival always includes live music and other entertainment as well as food, drinks, and desserts.

Experience Banff’s Wildlife

Banff is known for its epic wildlife, so keep your eyes open for unexpected visitors all around you! If you specifically want to seek out wildlife, try one of the wildlife tours offered in the area.

St. Lucia

Craving the mountains but can’t imagine a babymoon without the ocean? Head to St. Lucia!

Jade Mountain Resort

Arguably the most popular place to stay in St. Lucia, Jade Mountain Resort has the best views in St. Lucia coupled with some of the most unique luxury amenities on the island. One of the most unique features of Jade Mountain Resort is the “removal of the fourth wall” – when you stay here, you will truly be one with nature as all rooms are open-air.

Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Hotel

Sugar Beach calls itself a “modern rainforest escape” as it is surrounded by 100 acres of tropical rainforest and white sand beaches. This resort is well-loved by honeymooners, so it is also perfect for those looking for a babymoon escape in the Caribbean!

What to do in St. Lucia for Your Babymoon

If you choose to go to St. Lucia for your babymoon, you will mostly be relaxing at your resort. However, if you are craving a little more adventure, you could visit the Sulphur Springs geysers, Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens, or take a day trip on a catamaran!

What to Wear on Your Babymoon in the Mountains

Dressing to impress in the mountains is honestly half the fun of going! I loooove finding “mountain chic” boots, sweaters, and fur coats. But we also need to make sure those looks are bump-friendly! Here is what I would recommend packing for your babymoon in the mountains.

First things first – if you don’t already own what I have deemed as The Pregnancy Uniform, AKA a bumpsuit, YOU NEED TO ORDER ONE IMMEDIATELY!!! They are sooo comfy and flattering. Perfect for the plane or just lounging around the hotel! And if leggings and a sweater are more your style, definitely get these.

I love anything winter white! So chic!

These maternity jeans are so cute and sooo comfy!

I can just see you walking into Hotel Jerome in Aspen with this chocolate fur coat on! Swooning!!

Did you hear? UGGs are back! You have to pack these super comfy slippers for your hotel room.

You can’t go to the mountains without some cute cowgirl boots!

ICYMI, these Stuart Weitzman boots are a cult favorite. They are basically the little black dress of black boots!

Comfy shoes are a MUST during pregnancy. Need I say more?

Love this belt over a sweater dress (above the bump, of course!)

You can wear this hat until your custom Stetson at Kemo Sabe is finished! 😉

And don’t forget that most resorts have year-round heated pools, so you will want to pack some bump-friendly swimsuits!

My go-to! I LIVED in this throughout my pregnancy. I was able to wear a medium throughout my entire pregnancy because the fabric is soooo stretchy, but if you are carrying larger or if you are later in the third trimester, size up! 

Highly recommend this bikini top and the sporty bottoms that hit below the belly!

  I love this knot bandeau top and these bottoms that are fuller coverage but hit below the belly!

Matching swimwear is a must for your babymoon! I love this Maui print.
