While smoking, alcohol and stress are best avoided, travelling, exercise and sex can be considered depending on your stage, comfort and doctor’s advice. There are some common queries regarding travel an expecting mother has. Let’s answer them right away.

Monday, September 4th, 2017


Travelling remains one of the prominent queries to deal with during the pregnancy. The safest time to travel during pregnancy is the second trimester, though bumpy rides should be avoided throughout the tenure. A short term travel does not affect the baby but a long tour to high attitudes should be avoided to provide breathing ease to the mother and baby.

If you have to take a long journey at any stage of your pregnancy, it is best to speak to your doctor first.

Complications while travelling:

  • Catching symptoms of the local disease against which the immunity is not prepared
  • A severe case of food poisoning might lead to many complications
  • A flight journey is not recommended beyond 35 weeks since it stresses the blood circulation of the mother which might be further provoked

Before you undertake any journey it is best to consult your doctor. In any circumstance you cannot take a risk to ensure safety for both you and your baby.
