Traveling in peace with peace of mind

Among the modes of travel, prefer the train and the plane to the car
Traveling by car is tiring, and the still position of the legs is not recommended.
You can safely fly to 7th months, unless your doctor advises against it. Ask him to obtain a certificate stating the stage of your pregnancybecause some companies claim it. Finally, have you possibly prescribe compression stockings that can relieve you in the plane.


If you are going abroad, make sure to find a sufficient level of health on the spot.
You must be able to go to a doctor and buy medicine if needed.
Think about the state of the toilets, where you will go frequently during the last trimester of the pregnancy !
Vaccine side, take stock of the recalls overdue. Some, such as yellow fever, are contraindicated for at least the first three months of pregnancyat the moment when the fetus is constituted. So choose a country where this type of vaccine is not needed: North America, Europe, Asia, Oceania ...
Ask about local food: it must be able to cover your calcium needs.
Take some medicine: the gastric "plasters" will be useful traveling companions as well as paracetamol. Ask your doctor for advice on mild antispasmodics, antidiarrheals, and antiseptic treatments.

Avoid the tourist circuits where you are in continual displacement.
Take good travel insurance and cancellation. It will eventually cover repatriation. Some credit cards cover the cancellation of the trip if the pregnancy is revealed before departure, but the cancellation insurance sold by the tour operators at the time of ticket sale does not always include this kind of clause. Make sure you have enough health on the spot: you need to be able to go to a doctor and buy medicine if needed.
