Health Tip: Traveling By Plane During Pregnancy?
-- If you travel by plane during pregnancy, take some extra time to ensure a more comfortable journey.
The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists offers these suggestions:
- Book an aisle seat, which can make it easier to get up, move around and stretch your legs.
- Avoid carbonated beverages and foods that tend to cause gas.
- Always wear your seatbelt, and keep it positioned below your belly.
- Ask your doctor about the safety of taking anti-nausea medication, if needed.
