Travelling While Pregnant – Pregnancy Travel Tips

 

Your last pre-baby holiday? Important business trip? Whatever the situation, the thought off travelling while pregnant can be daunting. I know it was for me. In fact, anything around pregnancy was daunting. I wish I had someone to tell me every day everything I can or cannot do while I was pregnant. When it comes to travelling while pregnant, I went to Belgium at the beginning of my pregnancy, but even though I had few opportunities, I didn’t travel anywhere later in the pregnancy, because I was too scared something bad could happen.

Well, if you are pregnant and want (or have) to travel, you don’t have to be scared. Lloyds Pharmacy have put together a guide for travelling while pregnant to ensure all pregnant ladies travel safe and comfortably. Yay!

Travelling While Pregnant

If you’re thinking about travelling while pregnant, you should definitely have in mind your medical history, antenatal checks and any increased risks. Discuss any health issues or pregnancy complications with your doctor or midwife, before deciding to go on a long trip. If your doctor cleared you for travelling while pregnant, try to travel in your second trimester and definitely get pregnancy travel insurance. You want to make sure that you are covered for key eventualities.

Well, I don’t want to talk too much about this topic because this cool infographic really says it all about travelling while pregnant. Just follow these simple pregnancy care tips and you will do anything in your power to stay safe and comfortable.

What do you think about travelling while pregnant? Did you go anywhere while you were pregnant? If you did, what did you do to stay safe? What steps did you take before your journey to make sure everything will be ok? Please share!

    We went on a brief beach vacation when I was pregnant with our son. I didn’t particularly enjoy it, since I was on partial bed rest, but I did try to be prepared. I agree that the second trimester is the best time to plan a vacation, especially if you have no children already and want one last vacation as just the two of you! Great info!

    These are such great tips. I didn’t travel in my last trimester (only one little so far), but I can imagine how scary it must be to be away from home, and be expecting. Thanks so much for linking it up at Tips & Tricks last week. I hope you’ll join us again… the party just went live! 🙂
