Suggestions For Pregnants Going On Holiday

For pregnant women, who become very sensitive due to hormonal changes and are constantly warned to “live stress-free”, vacation is a good escape from the stress of their daily lives or work. So, what should pregnant women who want to go on holiday pay attention to? Liv Hospital Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist Op. Dr. Sibel Malkoç explained.

  • When traveling, pregnant women can travel by car or plane, provided that they are not immobile.
  • Those who complain of excessive nausea and vomiting in the first period of pregnancy (the first three months) can have a more comfortable holiday if they shift their holiday plans to after the third month of pregnancy.
  • Since blood clotting increases during pregnancy, especially those with advanced pregnancies should take breaks every two to three hours and move and relax their arms and legs.
  • During plane journeys exceeding five to six hours, they can walk for 10-15 minutes inside the plane every few hours.
  • During the journey, pregnant women should drink plenty of fluids and wear the seat belt from the bottom, not the top of the abdomen.
  • We do not recommend sunbathing for pregnant holidaymakers as it causes dehydration and increases spots on the face and belly. Pregnant women who want to sunbathe should apply a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher several times a day, except between 12:00-15:00. When choosing sunscreen; One should choose those that are water resistant and do not contain vitamin A derivatives that are harmful to the baby, such as retinol.
