Traveling While Pregnant | High Desert Shuttle Apple Valley HesperiaSo, you’re expecting a child, but you don’t want that to keep you from traveling the world. As such, you are planning on traveling while pregnant and are looking for some helpful tips to make your trip a little easier. No problem: we’ve got some useful travel tips below.

Stay Plenty Hydrated

Believe it or not, it’s easy to forget to drink water when you’re traveling and sightseeing. And because pregnant women are more prone to dehydration, you’ll need to take extra measures to protect yourself and your baby. Bring a water bottle with you wherever you go!

Ask for an Aisle Seat

Plane travel can be uncomfortable as it is, but even more so when you’re pregnant. To make things a little easier on yourself, consider asking for an aisle seat on the plane. Most people will be more than happy to switch seats with you so you can more easily make it back and forth from the restroom without having to squeeze past others in your row.

Sanitize Often

The last thing you want is to come down with an illness while you’re traveling and pregnant.┬áMake sure you have all the vaccines you need (and can receive) while pregnant and traveling outside the country and be sure to take steps to protect yourself. Carry hand sanitizer with you at all times and use it regularly to help kill germs and reduce your chances of falling ill while you’re away from home.

Hire Reliable Transportation

Getting to and from your airport can be stressful enough without trying to do it while pregnant. Make getting to and from the airport easier and less stressful on everybody in your group by hiring an Apple Valley, Victorville, Hesperia, or Adelanto area airport shuttle from High Desert Shuttle. This way, you’ll enjoy a comfortable ride and get help from the driver with any luggage you may be carrying.
