Would you fly while pregnant? I must say that back when I was pregnant, I certainly wouldn’t have considered boarding an airplane unless it was absolutely necessary, but thanks to a great new guide from CheapFlights.ca, I certainly don’t feel that way anymore! Flying While Pregnant is the newest article available on the website and it is chock-full of tips for pregnant women that want to take to the sky.
Whether you’re just looking for some quick tips to make your flight comfortable or are seeking more comprehensive information about specific rules and regulations, the CheapFlights.ca Flying While Pregnant guide has what you’re looking for. I was especially impressed by the Rules section; it contained a list of twelve of the largest airlines along with information about each airline’s specific regulations regarding flying while pregnant.
I also appreciated that there was useful advice for after landing too! I must admit, it likely wouldn’t have occurred to me to keep a list of emergency numbers and nearby hospitals on me in case of early delivery, but taking a few minutes to compile that information and have it close by could be incredibly useful in an emergency. And if you’re headed to a warmer climate, it can be easy to forget that skin is more sensitive during pregnancy when you first step out into the glorious sunshine! Here are just a few of the handy quick tips that you’ll find in the article:
- Travel with at least one companion who also has your emergency contact info in addition to your doctor’s number programmed into their phone.
- Carry documentation with your expected date of delivery, doctor’s contact info, and your blood type.
- Stay hydrated. Dehydration on airplanes can be worse when you’re pregnant, so drink plenty of caffeine-free, non-alcoholic fluids before, during, and after the flight.
- Wear your seatbelt continuously to minimize risk of injury from unpredictable turbulence.
Overall, Flying While Pregnant answered all the questions I had and contained lots of great tips to make the traveling experience more enjoyable too.
