Perhaps you’ve got a travel bug that you just can’t satisfy? Maybe you want to jump on the trends of babymoons? Whatever the case, there are many things you need to know about traveling when pregnant to make sure mother and baby get the most out of their vacation.
Time Your Trip
This can be key to making sure you get the most out of your vacation. Many expecting mothers prefer to travel in their second trimester as this is when morning sickness usually passes and the baby hasn’t got too big just yet.
Pregnant women are more likely to develop blood clots if they sit still for too long. This means it’s important to move around if you’re flying or driving for a long time.
Heading on vacation while pregnant doesn’t mean you have to try and conquer the world. It could be a good idea to schedule breaks into your day to make sure you don’t get overtired while you’re away.
Think About Insurance
Of course, it’s best to get the all-clear from your doctor before you travel, but that doesn’t mean your baby will stick to the plan. Travel insurance can help take away some of the worries in case you need a doctor while you’re on vacation.
It might be a good idea to make sure you know the nearest hospital or find one that can accommodate your pregnancy just in case you need one while you’re away. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
Being pregnant doesn’t mean that you have to put your dreams of traveling on hold or forget about that vacation. In fact, it can be the perfect way to relax and enjoy some quiet time before you welcome a new little one into your lives.
