Travelling by plane while pregnant: what are the risks?
Good news! You can travel by plane during your pregnancy. You simply need to know some risks to anticipate them better.
- Nausea due to motion sickness: take homeopathic pills to reduce these inconveniences.
- Risk of thrombosis: you should wear compression socks, drink a lot of water, and walk as often as possible down the plane aisle.
- Giving birth in the air: this is why most airlines will refuse to board you during the last weeks of your pregnancy.
- Always seek the advice of your pregnancy doctor before planning to travel by plane.
