Travel During Pregnancy

Always consult with your healthcare provider if you are allowed to travel.

When driving or flying:

  • Take breaks from sitting every hour by walking around
  • Do exercises in your seat: rotate and flex your feet and ankles several times frequently
  • Take off your shoes if you can
  • Drink plenty of water, even more than usual while traveling
  • If traveling outside the country, the CDC is a great resource for travel alerts, safety tips, and up-to-date vaccination facts for many countries

We do not recommend:

  • Extended travel (more than one hour) after 34 weeks
  • Airplane travel after 34 weeks of pregnancy
  • If pregnancy is considered high risk, consult your healthcare provider
