Travel during pregnancy

Pregnant women should take frequent breaks during a long journey.

During pregnancy, following tips are to be kept in mind while travelling:-

  • If the journey is long, frequent breaks (every hour preferably) are necessary to keep the circulation going in the body.
  • If the seat belt has to be worn, it should be worn low on the hips and not on the abdomen to avoid undue pressure.
  • Snacks should be carried on the journey to prevent the feeling of nausea and to maintain the energy levels in the body.
  • A pillow etc. should be carried to use during uncomfortable
  • The doctor should give a clearance for travel before the journey.
