Health Tip: Traveling By Air During Pregnancy

Health Tip: Traveling By Air During Pregnancy


(HealthDay News) -- Flying is safe for most healthy women who are pregnant, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) says, although some airlines have restrictions during the last month of pregnancy.

The ACOG offers these general suggestions for pregnant women who travel by plane:

  • Try to reserve an aisle seat, so you can get up and stretch your legs during a long trip.
  • Don't drink carbonated beverages or eat foods that cause gas before you fly.
  • Always wear your seatbelt on the flight, with the belt beneath your belly.
  • Ask your doctor about anti-nausea medication if you tend to feel sick during flights.
