Can I fly if I’m pregnant?

Allen Last updated:
If you’re well and your pregnancy has been straightforward and ‘low risk’, air travel is generally considered safe. But you should still check with your midwife or obstetrician before booking any flights.
Airlines request a medical certificate if travelling after 28 weeks of pregnancy. Most airlines won’t allow air travel after 36 weeks for a single pregnancy and 32 weeks for multiple pregnancies.
You also need travel insurance to cover both yourself and your unborn baby in the event you need to give birth unexpectedly during your trip.
