– Prepare all your vital health information, medical records and your doctor’s contact information. Bring along a copy of your prenatal chart with you at all times during the trip.

– Prepare your medications, make sure that you have an adequate supply of any prescription medicines, prenatal vitamins, and other medications that you need.

Just remember these safe travel tips during pregnancy as these tips will help to keep you and your baby safe. Enjoy your travels!
