Air travel at 30 weeks Lock Rss

Hi, I would like to know how safe it is to fly at about 30 weeks. We would love to go to Phuket for a weeks holiday before baby no 3 is born. My pregnancy has been great with no problems and both previous births were normal. I am 36 yrs old. Do you think it is safe for me to travel at this stage, we are in need of some well earned rest and relaxation, but I am not sure if we've left it too late to travel by air.

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. It may be best to check with the airline that you intend to use as different companies have different rules. Most airlines don’t let you fly after 36 weeks because of the risk of going into labour.
Best wishes,
Alex.
