Can pregnant women fly
Pregnant women can fly. However, it should be reminded that even if pregnant women are healthy, most obstetricians and gynecologists do not approve of pregnant women taking the opportunity in the early and late pregnancy, because pregnant women and fetuses in these periods are very sensitive to changes in external environmental factors.
Early pregnancy, that is, the first three months, is the most serious period of early pregnancy reactions, such as nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite. It is also a key period for the formation of fetal organs. The growth and development of the fetus is still unstable and prone to abortion; In the third trimester of pregnancy, that is, the last three months, accidents during the journey may induce serious complications such as uterine contraction, premature delivery and early placental detachment. Pregnant women can't move for a long time on the plane. In addition, the enlarged uterus oppresses blood vessels and affects blood reflux, which is easy to lead to thrombosis.
