Thinking of going to Vegas pregnant? Follow these expert tips for a fabulous Las Vegas Babymoon

I love Vegas! It is the perfect vacation destination, no matter your situation. It was fun for me as a child, long before I was legal to party. I thoroughly enjoyed it in my 20’s, when I could fully participate in Sin City shenanigans. If you’ve read my blog then you know how I feel about making any destination kid-friendly, and therefore absolutely love doing Vegas with kids, and Vegas with my young baby. And yes, I even loved Vegas when I was pregnant! I was pregnant in Las Vegas (twice) and it was fabulous.

So you going to Vegas while pregnant? Well, there is no shortage of fun things to in Vegas pregnant. From getting prenatal massages and lounging poolside to shopping and shows, here is my list for the ultimate babymoon in Vegas.

Is it safe to visit Vegas while pregnant?

The short answer is YES, IT’S SAFE. Let’s just get this out of the way. A lot of people ask this question, but I personally think it is a silly question with a simple answer. Of course it is safe to spend a few days or a week of your pregnancy in Vegas.

Most Vegas casinos do still allow smoking on the floor, BUT there are also non-smoking areas if you are really concerned about this for the limited time you will actually be spending in the casino while pregnant.

Especially for the larger hotels on the Vegas Strip, these hotels have air filtration systems that do a pretty good job of keeping the air safe to breathe for kids, adults, and pregnant women. While there is room for improvement, most of us are exposed to air pollutants constantly anyways, especially in big cities, so it is not something I personally worry about for a few days in Vegas.

Honestly, you just have to use good judgment and common sense to have a safe visit to Las Vegas. Get adequate sleep and rest (you know your body). Eat well. Stay hydrated. etc.

By the way, if you’re planning a visit, check out our helpful articles on the best family hotels in Las Vegas, and the Top shows for families in Vegas. Also, if you are looking for a beautiful map of hotels on the Las Vegas Strip, we have one of the best ones right HERE.

Now to the fun stuff!

I will show you some useful tips on how to have a fabulous time pregnant in Vegas.

What to do in Vegas while pregnant?

There are very few activities you will actually be restricted from doing when visiting Las Vegas pregnant, so the whole city is basically at your fingertips…but there are some fun things to do in Vegas pregnant that are perfect, or in some cases even specially tailored, for expecting mothers. If you are pregnant and visiting Vegas with kids, there are plenty of budget-friendly and age appropriate activities as well.

In fact, the lack of your ability to drink and gamble all night will actually force you to enjoy some of the other great attractions in Vegas such as spas, pools, shopping and shows, which can actually be a delightful and refreshing new experience of Vegas.

Prenatal Massage Las Vegas

When we go to Las Vegas, we always stay at a big hotel on the Vegas Strip and rarely venture far from the strip (except that one time we drove several stressful miles searching for a grocery store for baby formula!). Here are some hotels to consider on the Vegas Strip with special prenatal pregnancy massages for expecting mothers.

Poolside in Las Vegas While Pregnant

Relaxing by the pool is a Las Vegas Maternity itinerary. One of the best things to do in Las Vegas when pregnant is float. Most big hotels on the Vegas strip have at least a decent pool, but there are a few that really step it up a notch and stand out for the amazing resort-style pool experience for enjoying your Las Vegas babymoon. Here are my favorite Vegas pools for families and expecting mothers.

Mandalay Beach at the Mandalay Bay

3950 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89119

The Mandalay Beach Pool is just as the name implies – it is a beach with real sand! This pool sits on a huge 11 acres at the center of Mandalay Bay properties, and is full of palm trees, fountains and waterfalls. My favorite feature is the 3 mph lazy river that circles the enormous pool area. It is one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy Las Vegas pregnant.

The Mirage Pool at Mirage

3400 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109

The Mirage Pool is my all-time favorite and the prime reason we stay at the Mirage almost every trip to Vegas. I have been pregnant in Vegas with all these cute little people you see in this photo! The huge winding pool is a true oasis, with cascading waterfalls and lush palm trees and greenery everywhere you might forget you are on the Vegas Strip for a moment. It also has a fun poolside restaurant and Dolphin Bar to take a break from the sun. There’s no better place to be in Las Vegas pregnant.

Garden of the Gods at Caesar’s Palace

3570 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109

The pool at Caesar’s Palace is not my favorite because it is not tropical, but it is very popular and quite beautiful. There are eight different pools set within classic Roman architecture, columns and sculptures. You can also swim-up and play blackjack or grab a cocktail, which is a really nice touch.

See a Show in Vegas While Pregnant

Catching a show is the perfect way to spend the evening pregnant in Las Vegas. There are so many great shows to choose from in Vegas, but we always tend to gravitate toward Cirque Du Soleil shows with intense acrobatics, interesting storytelling and heart-pounding music and theatrics. It seems that every major hotel on the strip has their own Cirque-style show, and for good reason. These shows are spectacular and super popular and will give you hours of interesting conversation afterwards. For complete list of our favorite shows in Las Vegas, check our list of Las Vegas Shows for Families, Best Cirque du Soleil Shows in Las Vegas, and Las Vegas Dinner and Show Packages.

I am pretty sure you can shop for literally anything at the shoppes at Mandalay Place and it is conveniently located right off the casino floor. There are also lots of cool restaurants and bars, like the Minus5 Ice Lounge where they supply you with a warm jacket and you imbibe from frozen glasses in a room basically made of ice cubes!

I lounge by the pool, I hang out at bars, I listen to live music, I eat yummy meals, I go to shows, and I even spent a little time gambling.

I created HotMamaTravel as an outlet to do what I love while sharing useful travel tips and inspiration with others. Our mission is to show parents how to master travel with kids, while keeping your Saturday-night selves. We call it "Family travel...with a twist".

  1. Lovely post! I did something similar on our babymoon to France and Italy. I truly enjoyed the beach, the sun, the food and the occasional sip of wine 😉 We had a brilliant time and are now waiting for our little one to arrive ( I am due in 2 weeks).
    I found your blog as I am looking for family travel blogs as we will change from travelling as a couple to travelling as a young family.
    Happy Travels!

    • Thanks Sabine! Your babymoon to France and Italy sound amazing! I travel a ton with my hubby before having kids, but traveling as a family is so exciting! Congrats on your new addition. You have a lot of wonderful memories in store!!

  2. P.A. in Chicago Reply

    Great post! I am *desperate* for a poolside vacay with good food before baby comes. I am 15 weeks and I’ll be towards the end of my 2nd trimester if/when we do go. Due to the Zika virus, Mexico and the Caribbean are out of the question. So I am desperate for a warm weather destination and this post totally helped! You look beautiful and happy in all those pics 🙂

    • Thank you Pauline Ann. I love Vegas, so I had to squeeze in a trip before my baby girl arrived. I hear you about the Zika virus! That is scary stuff! California is really warm right now, so a beach vacation in San Diego or Laguna Beach might be fun.

  3. So happy to stumble upon this, I’m 31 weeks and will be visiting Vegas next week. I’m now looking forward to checking out the Irish Pub since my Fiance is Irish.

    • Awesome! So you’ll be preggo in Vegas too! I hope you love Nine Fine Irishmen as much I do! Tell me about it when you get back!

  4. Rebecca Young Reply

    So happy to find this today! My husband and I just found out we’re pregnant literally…. (5 weeks) and are headed there on Wednesday. Excited to see that you can still enjoy yourself!!!

    • Congratulations! I’m glad you found me too! I headed back to LV in a couple weeks myself (with the kids of course haha). Have a great time!!!

  5. Hey, great post – just about to head to LV from London to get some sunshine with hubby and I’ll be about 22 weeks. Just wanted your opinion on eating buffet food and/or if there’s places you’d recommend over others. I havent been super strict about food but there’s the obvious safety things to consider.

    • My favorite buffet is Crave at The Mirage. In fact, I’ll be binging there this weekend. Ha. My girl friend just told me that the Cosmo hotel has an amazing buffet called Wicked Spoon. Have fun!

  6. I went to Vegas when I was about 17 weeks pregnant with my first (and went to AC when I was about 30 weeks along) I pretty much did what you did, enjoyed the pool, shopping, gambling and shows. Gorged on the food and didnt drink alcohol. It was pretty much our babymoon with our first. With my second we went on a local weekend away – to Tarry town NY, pretty much to relax and sleep. Got massages, pool, nice dinners. As long as you are healthy and feel good, you can still travel while pregnant.

    • Yes, definitely! Minus alcohol and strenuous activities, travel doesn’t have to change too much.

  7. Interesting to see Vegas as a destination for when you are pregnant! I am never going to have kids but I do love Vegas for the buffets and the pools!

  10. Did you have to wear a maternity bathing suit while swimming in Vegas? Is it ok to wear just a bikini? I am going next week. And it’s going to be HOTT!

    • Hi Katrina. I would say that you should rock ANYTHING that you feel comfortable in! It will be so hot this time of year, so be sure to drink a lot of water and stay cool as often as possible! Stay safe and have fun 🙂
