Pregnancy and Travel

  • Is this really the time to travel? All pregnant women should ask themselves the question of the need to travel and assess the risks to her health and her baby. Complications abroad can be life-threatening and this risk varies according to destination and type of trip. If the pregnancy is progressing in a satisfactory condition and the doctor sees no cons-indication to travel, the best time to travel is the second trimester. Before leaving, plan a complete obstetrical examination recorded in the book of pregnancy with marked different analyzes and contact your doctor.
  • Food and Hygiene: Some diseases transmitted by food or water are particularly severe during pregnancy (toxoplasmosis, hepatitis A and E, listeriosis among others). Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly. Drink boiled drinks or encapsulated. Avoid raw vegetables, seafood, unpasteurized cheeses and undercooked meat.
