    Default Flying while pregnant?

    I flew to Scotland at 32weeks and returned at 34weeks in September. I got medical clearance from my GP and took a clearance to fly with me (which was never asked for). That was flying 2 different airlines (Jetstar & KLM).

    Domestically in my first pregnant I flew up to 35 weeks... A 4 hour flight.

    Did you have travel insurance? And if you did, who did you get it through?

    If you can find an insurer who will cover you after 24 weeks (rare in Aus) Really check the fine print.. if the conception was medically assisted in ANYWAY then you most likely won't get covered.

    The flights were booked using MasterCard platinum that include travel insurance. I didn't look at the fine print so may not have covered pregnancy. I am UK citizen though, so should I needed medical treatment whilst there I would of been covered... I went for a funeral, I don't think it's something I would choose to do that pregnant again... The 12 hour stint in the air was hard!

    Hey sweetpeamummy... Do you have to get any vaccinations to fly to Bali? My GP said no to flying to places like that?

    No vaccinations. I told 2 midwives I was going and when, they both asked if they could come. I also went to a GP for a letter stating I was fit to fly who asked me lots if questions but did not advise me not to travel.
    Common sense prevails when travelling at all times even when pregnant.
