Travel During Pregnancy

It is generally considered safe to travel during pregnancy, but there are some things to know before you leave. Talk to your health care provider or a travel clinic about plans to travel at least 6 weeks before you depart. Your health care provider/travel clinic can help you to determine if any vaccinations or other precautions are necessary, depending on where you are going.

Make safe travel plans if you need to travel during pregnancy.

If you decide to travel while pregnant, check your travel insurance. In particular, check your policy for coverage of pregnancy-related conditions or hospital care for premature infants. You should also carry your prenatal records and your health care provider’s contact information when travelling in case of emergency.
