Travelling in pregnancy

Some women prefer not to travel in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy due to increased nausea and vomiting and tiredness during these early stages. The risk of miscarriage is also higher in the first 12 weeks, irrespective of any travel, so you may wish to remain closer to home. Many women find the best time to take a holiday is at around 4 to 6 months of pregnancy.

During pregnancy there is an increased risk of DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and the risk is also increased by long haul flights.
