In our country, few people can take a vacation when he wants. Therefore, often there is a situation when the tickets are already on hand, and the test gives out two strips. What to do – take the tickets or still take a chance and go?
What is dangerous air travel
First you need to know what can be dangerous air flight during pregnancy. What can happen?
– preterm labor
– loss of consciousness
– fetal hypoxia
– the formation of blood clots in the legs, if the flight is too long, and the mother drinks little liquid
– increased toxicosis
– improving the tone of the uterus
And although the risk of these problems is not so great, you should always remember the minimum probability that a qualified doctor will be on board. This is not to mention the medical equipment – it will not be exactly in the sky, and to land the plane is not a matter of more than one minute.
My girlfriend made a very short flight — only for two hours, but this time was enough for her to decide forever — no flights to pregnancy! The girl was at 33 weeks of pregnancy, but barely managed to get to the hospital after landing. Now the child is already four years old and his name is affectionately no different than the pilot.
There are diagnoses, in the presence of which it is forbidden to fly, so before finally deciding whether to fly, you must consult with a competent doctor. In any case, most doctors forbid flights with multiple pregnancies, pregnancy after artificial insemination, with the threat of miscarriage, as well as after 36 weeks.
Be sure to read the rules of the airlines whose flights you plan to make the flight. Chances are good that they will ask you for a certificate from the doctor not only for flying there, but also back. Therefore, it is worthwhile to attend to the search for a gynecologist at the place of arrival.
Also, some airlines will ask you for a certificate, relieving them of responsibility for your health during the flight. And do not forget your exchange card – it will come in handy.
If everything is in order and all obstacles are overcome, congratulations! Now it’s up to you to get ready for the flight.
