Relaxing on a babymoon

Four Seasons Costa Rica at Peninsula PapagayoWhere do new moms- and dads-to-be go to relax and unwind before giving birth? On a babymoon, of course! In the newest trend since the honeymoon, couples everywhere are chilling out one last time before they give birth. Indulge recently received information on the Four Seasons Costa Rica and we think this is a place where soon-to-be moms and dads can definitely relax*.

First stop .. the spa!

For mom-to-be:

The spa at the Four Season Costa Rica offers a 75-minute pregnancy massage (recommended by them for women in their 2nd or 3rd trimester). It features delicate to medium pressure and has been found to diminish swelling in arms and legs. It also has been said to relieve discomfort in muscles and joints and it reduces stress.

Or… how about a scrub that sounds good enough to eat! The marvelous mango sugar scrub features mango, honey and raw sugar, which are used to exfoliate and replenish skin. The full-body treatment is finished off with a natural mango lotion to moisturize.

For dad-to-be:

Try the rainforest aromatherapy. This full-body massage mixes slow gliding strokes with gentle to medium pressure to lessen tightness, calm sore muscles and boost circulation. The massage features blends of essential oils designed for the needs of each individual. Choose either 60-90 minutes.

Or.. how about a facial designed just for men. The men’s classic sports facial is 75 minutes and features cleansing, toning and exfoliation. Next are light extractions, and soothing facial massage and a mask. The facial is finished off with a moisturizer.

The Four Season’s Costa Rica has four onsite restaurants to choose from. Some of our favorites for the babymoon are Congo’s, which is poolside and features healthy foods including salads, sandwiches, vegetarian dishes and seafood. For a more dressed-up meal, check out Di Mare, an Italian/seafood restaurant with a menu that changes daily.

There is a fitness room that is open everyday. It features classes, trainers, machines... and even complimentary fruit.

Unwind at one of the 3 pools, including a 10,765-square-foot freshwater main pool. There are 2 smaller pools, one that overlooks the activities beach, Blanca Bay and another that overlooks Playa Virador (the quiet beach).

The Arnold Palmer golf course has views of the Pacific Ocean on 14 different holes. And, if you are not the most experienced golfer, the resort offers clinics, a tour of the course and a twilight golf session.

If you are in the mood for something a little more low-key, the resort has excellent bird watching. They also offer cooking classes, or if you like to hang on the beach, try their meditation/relaxation or sand castle-building.

Wherever you choose for your babymoon, make sure it is relaxing and has activities that both mom-to-be and dad-to-be can enjoy.

* These are simply babymoon suggestions by Indulge. A woman should always talk her doctor to make sure the activities she chooses are safe during pregnancy
