More than the customs and immigration officials, we have the transport providers having rules about traveling while you are pregnant. The simple rule followed by immigration officers is that you don’t try to exploit US facilities to new mothers and babies, but bear in mind the rules that travel companies (airlines and shipping) have for you.
Before we get into the rules, an important thing to note is that rules are flexible from carrier to carrier as to the airline policy for pregnant women.They aren’t standard across the industry, so make it a point to check with each transport provider separately about their travel requirements for pregnant women before you book your flight. Assuming rules applicable for one company are valid across the industry could cost you heavily.
The restrictions they have in place are for the safety of the mother and child, as well as to try and avoid the companies from being responsible for you both, or come under fire for any mishaps that may occur to you. they want to be sure the pregnant woman is fit to fly.
