What is a procreation vacation?In honor of the Labor Day holiday, I thought I would write about vacations and getting pregnant. I've read and written a number of articles over the years about "procreation vacations" . It seems like a number of people tend to get pregnant while they are away from all of the stressors in their life. If you are a couple that has been trying to conceive for one or more years, it almost becomes a job. You have everything very scientifically planned out and your bodily cycles are monitored like a mission control center.
The idea behind procreation vacations is that you put your mind and body to rest. Yes, you still might be trying to conceive, but it is done in a very relaxed way. There are a number of resorts that actually cater to couples who want to take a vacation for the purpose of getting pregnant
Here is a story of a couple who succeeded in getting pregnant on vacation:
Hughes and her husband, Kemry, went to the Westin at Our Lucaya Grand Bahama Island, where the three-night Procreation Vacation starts at $1,893. They lounged on the beach, swam in the pool, sipped pumpkin soup and enjoyed couple's massages. Hughes and her husband also were also served an age-old Caribbean fertility concoction three times a day: sea moss, the Caribbean's version of Viagra, mixed with evaporated milk, sugar and spices. (She said it tasted like an almond smoothie.)
The chain also offers the package at their resorts on St. John and Puerto Rico.
"My husband and I thought that we would go on the vacation and learn all these nice fertility secrets and we'd be practicing them for a number of months for them to work," said Hughes, 35, who conceived the day she got back from the trip. "We were stunned. There's definitely some truths to the foods and the elixirs." from USA today
