Planning a vacation or a business trip during pregnancy can get stressful, especially if it’s your first time. Here are our best tips for making traveling as comfortable as possible during pregnancy.
Check With Your Doctor
If everything is okay with your health, your doctor will probably give you permission to travel, but it’s a good idea to check with them even if you don’t think there are any problems. Once you get the green light, you’ll be able to completely relax.
The first trimester is usually spent with nausea and vomiting, and the third trimester has you too big to be properly comfortable, plus there’s a risk of preterm delivery. Your second trimester is the best time to enjoy traveling one more time before your baby gets here.
Getting travel insurance is important in case of any complications or if you simply need medical attention. It’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it! Getting travel insurance is a good idea whether you’re pregnant or not, but it’s especially important during pregnancy.
