    Default Travelling to Bali pregnant??

    Plus for me, holidays are about kicking back and relaxing with a cocktail and I didn't drink during pregnancy.

    One of my very close friends, a die-hard anti-vaxxer, went to Bali when pregnant with her hubby and one-year-old. I was a little shocked tbh. I asked her how or why she did that, and she was just so casual about the whole thing. She had a great time and was absolutely fine. Me personally, as much as I usually like to believe in trusting in the natural immunity of your body, I would probably not take the risk.

    Gosh I didn't even think of Zika. I don't think I will go. I would be so stressed out and wouldn't be able to relax I think.

    Normally I would be pretty 50/50 on it, but with Zika it would be 100% no way not a chance don't do it.

    I always go with official government travel advice and warnings. So if they say don't go to Bali if you're pregnant, I would take that advice. You might not be covered by insurance as well if something went wrong and you went against official travel warnings.

    What a shame! Bali would have been a lot of fun!

    I have been to Bali countless times but with the Zika virus warnings, I would not go if I was you.

    I wouldn't go with the Zika virus about and warnings of it... I also wouldn't travel anywhere but a first world country with top rate medical facilities while pregnant or with small kids... Probably over caustious but heard too many horror stories! We have already said with our first due soon that it's just Australia for a while and maybe KL which has amazing medical facilities otherwise no way to anywhere else in Asia just my reasoning
