Travel Guidelines

Travel-Guidelines_732853201

Traveling in later pregnancy is usually fine, but keep a few things in mind:

  • Check the regulations on your specific airline before you travel; many have restrictions on flying in pregnancy.
  • DO NOT FLY after 36 weeks.
  • Take a copy of your prenatal medical file along with you (just in case!).
  • Increase your fluids.
  • For every hour of travel (either in a plane or by car), make sure you move or walk around for 5-10 minutes. This will help prevent swelling and blood clots.
  • Also, if you must remain seated, flexing and extending your calf muscles can help decrease the likelihood of blood clots in your legs.
  • Make sure to discuss your travel plans with your provider so he or she can give you more specific guidance tailored to your situation.
