There is no reason a healthy woman should have to put her life on hold for nine months. And what better time to take time out to relax than when you’re expecting a new addition to the family. Although pregnancy is no longer a barrier to travel, it is important to consider all aspects and be sensible about it.
You should take out travel insurance as soon as you have booked your trip. Trip cancellation late in your pregnancy is obviously a higher risk than when you’re not pregnant, particularly for the late stages of pregnancy. Travel insurance will bring the much needed peace of mind, that you are covered should any pregnancy related complications occur during your travels.
