I would like to travel, what method of transport should I use?

Car: Traveling by car is not contraindicated. Be careful during long trips about the risk of premature labor.

Practical advice:

  • During a long journey, plan regular breaks
  • Fasten your seatbelt

The train is preferable for long distances.

Practical advice:

  • Stretch your legs regularly
  • Get up and walk around regularly
  • Compression stockings

Flying is not contraindicated except towards the end of the pregnancy.

Not all airlines have the same rules, so it is recommended to obtain a medical certificate from your physician allowing you to fly.

Practical advice:

  • Stretch your legs regularly
  • Get up and walk around regularly
  • Compression stockings
  • Fasten your seatbelt
