Eight Steps For Safe Travel
Many couples plan to travel during pregnancy. The holidays can be a
time of great anticipation, excitement and also stress. Although it
can be perfectly safe to travel during your pregnancy, you'll need to
do some extra planning and take a few added precautions. Following
are a few steps for safe travel during pregnancy that will help you:
If you are traveling in car, the first and foremost thing to be kept is
the Windshield Alert. In case of any medical emergency, it will alert
other motorists to move over using Windshield Alert™ Emergency
banner. The Static-cling Emergency sign will show them that you
need to get to help, FAST!
Consult The Healthcare Provider:
Before traveling schedule a checkup with your the healthcare
provider and after getting the approval, it will be safe to travel.
Your medical records and vital health information:
Keep all your previous medical records and the important health
information along with the important names and phone
numbers, you'll need in case of emergency and pack it in your carry-
on luggage. In case, you are planning an extended visit, have your
healthcare provider refer you to someone in the area for check-ups
Keep all the medications you need:
Keep a sufficient supply of prescription medications, prenatal
vitamins, and even over-the-counter remedies you may need during
your trip. Stuff them in your purse in case you get separated from
Health insurance policy:
Check your health insurance policy and figure out if it covers the
pregnancy complications. If not, then it is advisable to buy one in
case you are going on a long journey.
If you need to cancel your trip on any point and you miss all or part
of your trip, this travel policy will definitely going to help as it covers
all the travel expenses. Make sure the policy covers emergency
medical transport from your chosen destinations.
Keep the Air-Bags Turned on:
While traveling by a car, keep the air bags turned on. The safety
benefits of the air bag outweigh any potential risk to the mum-to-be
and the baby.
Prepare for the unexpected:
Join an auto club, if you've not yet joined any. That provides road
service in case your car breaks down or has a flat tire. And always
carry a cell phone, especially if you're traveling alone.
