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.
