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.
