If you're pregnant, you likely can't wait for the day when you finally get to hole up at home with your new baby — no visitors, no hospital staff, just your little fam. But if you're a traveler, your lifelong wanderlust is likely still alive and well, baby-making be damned (especially if you spent the better part of your first trimester touring every toilet in town thanks to morning sickness.) So, are you ready for one last kid-free vacation? You bet you are.

Your first/last babymoon before kids is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and you'll want to make it one-of-a-kind too. That means a carefully crafted balance between adventure, romance and relaxation. But since the CDC still recommends that pregnant women steer clear of any areas that have been hit by Zika (see the global map here), you'll want to consider the Zika-free parts of the United States, Europe, Africa and Australia for your mom-to-be getaway. Ahead, we've rounded up a few ideas to inspire your pre-baby travel booking in 2018.
