Is Babymooning before or after the baby comes?

When do you babymoon? I think it is after one has a baby but many seem to disagree. Most people believe that babymooning is what a couple does before a baby arrives, they go off some place together to spend some special time alone before they just are not alone anymore. This is reasonable and […]
