Pregnancies can be stressful – preparation is hectic, nerves are fraught, and we know parents could really use a break before the sleepless nights begin.

We’ve had glowing reports from couples who have come back feeling ready to take on this new responsibility after spending their trip bonding, talking and looking forward to the future.
