Question: Does airplane pressure affect pregnancy?

Can I travel during first month of pregnancy?

“In the absence of a reasonable expectation for obstetric or medical complications, air travel is safe up to 36 weeks gestation,” he says. “Pregnant women can observe the same basic precautions for air travel as the general public.” The first trimester is an especially low-risk time to travel during pregnancy.

Can I fly when 6 months pregnant?

From the seventh month of pregnancy onwards the physical burden of carrying the baby increases. The longer the pregnancy continues the higher the chance that labour will occur. For this reason most major airlines will not allow pregnant women to travel after 34 weeks1 (this includes the return flight!).
