6 Things To Keep In Mind While Travelling When You’re Pregnant

Whether you’re planning a short vacation just before your bundle of joy arrives, a critical work trip or even a short four hour drive, make sure to prioritize your comfort and health while on the go. With some simple planning strategies, you can reduce your travel anxieties and get the most out of your time.

Check out these tips for taking a trip when you’re expecting.

1. Choosing Your Destination

Select some place that doesn’t involve a lot of travelling as long flights can be uncomfortable during pregnancy. Ideally, try to choose somewhere within a two-hour to three-hour flight. It’ll also help if there isn’t a long transfer from the airport. It’s much easier to relax and enjoy your holiday when you know that there are good shops and medical facilities nearby, so do a little research online before you go. It is best to avoid travelling to areas where vaccinations are required during pregnancy. Also, avoid travelling to areas where there is a risk of catching a mosquito-borne disease, such as malaria, dengue or zika. Steer clear of cities with extra high altitudes and avoid high risk activities like skiing, snowboarding, skydiving. Maximize your time in a new destination with brisk walks, low-impact swims or relaxing yoga on the beach.
