Long travel during pregnancy

Hi all mummies, I am going to travel to Europe that will take me 7 hours flight and another 5 hours flight to reach during my 29 weeks of pregnancy. Is it safe to do so?

consult your dr first cause Emirates did ask me for a fit to fly letter. I just came back from London. had to wear compression stalking, walked every one hour or 2 and do exercise. I also chose the aisle seat .


Depends on your pregnancy risk level. Consult your gynae and get letter of clearence. Otherwise airline have the rights to reject your boarding. Have a safe trip!

Not advisable. The travelling can be quite tiring and also because of the air pressure etc causing swollen feet and dehydration problems etc.

Consult gynae. Avoid if possible otherwise rem to wear compression stockings during the flight to prevent DVT.

Yes. I went to Europe during 1st trimester. My gynae said it's safe as long as baby is healthy.

If I’m not wrong, after 28 weeks, required doctor letter in order to travel.

Will they even let you take the flight during 3rd trimester?

In your second trimester should be fine plus consult gynae
