Most mums-to-be don’t feel their best during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, with symptoms like morning sickness and fatigue often at their peak. There’s no reason you can’t travel during this time, but if you can, plan to leave your holiday until later on in your pregnancy. Chances are you’ll feel much more able to enjoy yourself in a few weeks.
If you do holiday during the first trimester, make it all about R&R. A chilled out Neilson Beachclub holiday where you can take naps in the sunshine, enjoy gentle swims in the pool and unwind in the spa with a prenatal massage is ideal.
Our Alana Beachclub in Croatia has a gorgeous wellbeing area, perfect for treating yourself to some pregnancy pampering. While medical advice states you should avoid the hot tubs and steam rooms, you’ll still love the peaceful pool with waterfall, hydromassage whirlpool and indulgent treatment menu. The climate here is a little cooler than you’ll find in the more southern beachclub locations and the newly refurbished rooms are fresh and contemporary – so even if all you feel like is reading your book in bed, you'll be nice and comfortable.
• Stay hydrated and eat little and often to combat nausea.
• Try a gentle walk along the beach, the fresh air and gorgeous sea views will help take your mind off any lingering morning sickness.
• If you’re already a parent, take full advantage of the fun Neilson kids’ clubs. Our qualified childcare staff will keep your little ones happy and active, giving you the chance to have a much-needed rest.
