Air Travel during Pregnancy: Some Do’s and Don’ts

Women of the previous generation rarely used to travel by air when they were pregnancy. However, now with changes in the professional and social position of women, they cannot avoid air travel often even during pregnancy. Are you pregnant and have plans of boarding the flight for some reason? Then you must follow some restriction to make sure that the air travel leaves no negative effect on you and your baby.

Studies have shown that the risk of experiencing miscarriage is slightly higher for frequent fliers (people who fly for more than 74 hours in a month) than those who don’t need to fly so often. According to the physicians, the safest time of flying during pregnancy is the 2nd trimester. This is because by the time women cross the 1st trimester, they come out of the increased risks of experiencing pre-term labors or miscarriages.

The doctors generally don’t recommend air travel once the women reach their 3rd trimester. There are even some airlines that do not accept reservations of women nearing the date of her delivery. These airlines have such regulation because they want to avoid a situation when a woman needs to deliver during the air travel. Unless there’s a major complication associated with pregnancy, the women generally stay medically fit during the 3rd trimester and the chances of getting miscarriages are also extremely low during this phase of pregnancy. However, as the date of delivery nears, sitting in a single position for several hours may be discomforting for the women.

If you are traveling by air during pregnancy you must make sure that you are sitting in a place where there’s extra legroom. You must also avoid the rows that do not have reclining seats.
