Travelling when pregnant

A pregnant woman travelling abroad draws a suitcase, with palm trees and a plane in the background.

You should think carefully about travelling already when planning a pregnancy. For the most part, the same travel-related problems apply to pregnant women as to other people. However, an expectant mother’s underlying disease, which can become aggravated during a holiday, or a high-risk pregnancy (e.g. twins) increase the risks of travel.

If these conditions apply to you, you should discuss your travel plans with a physician. In addition, pregnant women should pay special attention to certain things when travelling abroad and should check the terms and conditions of their travel insurance policies.
