Based in Sebastopol, Cindy Scott-Fuchs of Mellow Mommy presents a variety of personalized babymoons at locations throughout Sonoma County, creating an intimate, private retreat for the daddy- and mommy-to-be. Her classic babymoon package includes two nights at your choice of lodgings, and a one-day visit from Mellow Mommy that includes a 90-minute prenatal massage for mommy, a 60-minute daddy-to-be massage, and a private “art of relaxation” coaching session offering valuable skills for coping with parenthood, all provided in your room.
Or you can choose your own lodgings, and Scott-Fuchs will bring her services to you. Other options might include meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, or a belly casting. Scott-Fuchs also offers group retreats twice a year, and periodically presents a Prenatal Art of Relaxation Coaching Session in Sebastopol for a limited number of students.
Whether you work with Mellow Mommy or plan your own getaway, Sonoma County offers a rich variety of settings for your babymoon, from a cabin in the redwoods to a delightful B&B in a quaint and walkable town, or an oceanview hotel room with a welcoming fireplace and private balcony.

Getting to Sonoma County, north of San Franciso, is easy by air or car. Here are some of the top Sonoma County babymoon destinations, by region.
