Expert opinion says that mothers having no complications with their pregnancy can travel by air without worrying, and just take a few steps to exercise caution.
Rita Bakshi, Chairperson of the International Fertility Centre, shares tips on how to help yourself to be safe while travelling during pregnancy:
- Stay hydrated: Diarrhoea is a common concern and it can lead to dehydration. So, make sure to drink plenty of water.
- Right seat: It is more convenient to take aisle seat as this will allow you to get up more easily to reach the restroom or just to stretch your legs.
- Comfortable clothes: Wear outfits which are comfortable and are not tight.
- Seat belt: Seat belt will help you to be stable, but wear it below your belly.
