How many months should a pregnant woman be safe to travel?
There are no explicit reasons why women cannot travel at any time of her pregnancy. All countries and airline companies state that pregnancy is not a state of physical handicap or inability, but for the safety of the mother and the baby, they restrict the times during which a mother and baby can travel.
Generally, you should be not more than 7 months pregnant to ensure your travel is smooth, and you don’t face any challenges from the travel companies you will be using. Post the 7th month (28th week), there are several checks put in place, even by your doctor. Plus, the chances of you being allowed to enter the USA in latter stages of pregnancy are not very high, unless you have a medical emergency. Consult your ob-gyn to get your medical clearance, and you may be advised not to do so, not without someone traveling with you.
The ideal time to travel during pregnancy is in the second trimester (no later than the 6th month).
Apart from your personal items and toiletries, make it a point to keep your emergency pills and medical records handy, should you ever require them while traveling.
