Tips for your Babymoon Vacation?
- Skin is more sensitive during pregnancy, so wear stronger sunscreen than usual.
- Keep a list of names and numbers to be contacted in case of emergency.
- Keep a list of local hospitals from the embassy or tourist board.
- Ask your doctor before embarking on any “dangerous” sports, such as diving or water sports.
- Bring your medical notes, including relevant ultrasounds, with you in case you need to go into the hospital or deliver early.
- You’re on the ground. Relax and enjoy yourself on what could be your last diaper-free break for a while.
Quick Tips for Healthy Air Travel While Pregnant
- 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 the risk of injury from unpredictable turbulence.
- Pack vitamin-rich fresh fruit such as grapes, plums, oranges, or dried apricots.
- Wear support hose and shoes with adjustable straps in case your feet swell.
- As always with flying, get up and walk around the cabin every two hours or so.
- Take an eye mask and earplugs and wear loose, comfortable clothing.
- Rest as much as possible while in the air.
