Dear Doctor,

1 Answer:

Hello Martha,


Thank you for the question.

In fact, as long as your condition and the fetus in your womb are healthy, you don't have a history of miscarriage, giving birth to a premature baby, or experiencing recurrent spots during pregnancy, not a problem traveling while pregnant. However, if the distance you will travel is far enough, done in a long time, especially using public transportation (including by airplane), then this seems quite risky, especially considering the age of your womb that just stepped on 8 weeks. It is feared, stress, fatigue, or shocks that you experience when walking are at risk of causing blood flow between the mother and fetus to be uneven, or even triggering uterine contractions, which certainly can be dangerous for the safety of your fetus. Sailing in the very young uterus can increase your risk and your fetus will experience health problems.


The good, you think back carefully to your departure plan is. Better yet, you first check yourself with a doctor or obstetrician so that the doctor can determine whether or not it is safe for you and the fetus to travel as you previously planned. Usually, even if it is permitted, your doctor will teach you special preventive measures that must be taken to minimize the risk to you or the fetus, for example by adjusting the position and way of sitting, carrying certain foods or medicines, using comfortable clothes, not carrying too heavy items, not using high heels, enough sleep, and so on. Not only that, some warning signs that you must be aware of must also be kept in mind, and you must also be prepared for the worst possibilities, such as by recording the number of health facilities that can be contacted when something unexpected happens.


Hope this helps ...
