10 Tips for Traveling While Pregnant
1 The primary and the most important thing that you can do is consult your health-care provider. Consult them and find out if you are healthy enough to travel or not. Make plans accordingly.
2 Check the prenatal test schedules which are due anytime during your travel plan weeks. Check if the schedules are perfectly syncing with your travel plans or not.
3 Have your medical records ready and keep them handy. Store all the vital information related to your conditions and the test reports of all your tests must be kept ready in case you might need them.
4 Similarly, make sure all your medications and the whole medical kit of yours is kept full and ready if you have to travel because you might need them anytime and there is no such guarantee that you will be finding them available everywhere. Why take a risk?
5 It is always important to keep your medical insurance ready because you might want it in case of emergency. You never know what kind of a condition you must be facing. I would be really glad and be hoping for you do not have any bad situation but then carrying them or having insurance is really a relief. Make sure you also consider thinking about travel insurance. This is also very useful and comes in with a lot of benefits to help you out in troublesome situations.
6 Prepare for the unexpected if you are already in your trimester. As the number of months increase, your risk factors also increase and that is when you should take some extra care and keep all the emergency lists handy. Negligence in such cases while traveling might be equal to committing a sin because you cannot really risk your lives at that point in time.
7 Always keep in mind to check the airline policies so that you don’t miss the details while looking for any cheap flights or last minute flights. Consider booking business class flights where you can have some privacy and luxury so that you take your own time and rest as per your own requirement.
8 Carry food with you so that you eat whatever is healthy for you. Do not depend on the food offered from outside. They might be unhealthy. Carry fruits or easy salads that have good values.
9 Make sure you carry water or glucose or at least arrange for them to have them regularly so that you don’t dehydrate yourself or tire yourself because losing energy is a major drawback when you are traveling with your precious child inside you.
10 The most important thing is to dress according to your comfort. Wear something soft and loose.
