Valentine’s Day is approaching fast! It’s the one holiday a year that celebrates love, from red paper hearts to flowers and romantic dinner dates. If you’re expecting a new addition to the family or you’re a new parent, don’t let the chaos of planning pull you away from spending time together this Valentine’s Day.
The Top Perfect Date Ideas for Pregnant Women
Couples Yoga Class.
Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating YOU, so why not bond with your soul mate with a relaxing activity that allows you to catch your breath from the chaos of baby planning. It’s a great exercise during pregnancy, and you can help each other master your Warrior 1 and Warrior 2 pose. There are several local movement centers in the Little Silver area that offer a variety of classes to help strengthen your core, while offering some great time together.
Become a Master Chef in the Kitchen.
Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy, it might be much more comfortable to have a dinner date in your own home. It’s a great opportunity to transform your kitchen into a five-star restaurant while fine-tuning your cooking skills together. Cooking can certainly be therapeutic and you’re bound to have a few laughs along the way. Get started by looking at our list of safe foods to eat while pregnant.
A Night of Mocktails.
Drinking alcohol during pregnancy is not recommended, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Try indulging with a mocktail as an alternative. You can create a drink inspired by your favorite cocktail by omitting the alcohol and adding water, seltzer, or fruit juice. Garnish with some strawberries or raspberries and you have the perfect drink for this new chapter of your lives together!
Pregnant women always need a little pampering, so how about a couples massage? Before you schedule an appointment, make sure the spa is able to accommodate pregnant women to ensure safety for you and your baby. A specialized pre-natal massage, such as those offered by Skin & Bones Day Spa in Little Silver, could be perfect for your mom-to-be.
Sometimes a movie night isn’t as easy when you have a little one running around. A movie date allows you to kick up your feet while still having a night out. A local independent theatre, such as Bow Tie Cinemas in Red Bank or The Showroom in Asbury Park, offer a much more intimate movie experience.
If you live in the area, call us and schedule an appointment with one of our Board-Certified pediatricians or attend one of our baby classes for moms-to-be to learn more about safe activities during pregnancy. We will gladly assist you.
