Perform Regular Exercises When Flying

Information About Pregnancy and Flying

If you are pregnant and flying on a long trip then it is very highly recommended that you do regular leg, foot and arm exercises whilst sitting in your seat, as well as getting up occasionally and walking around the plane. Doing this will prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and it is even more relevant to pregnant women because they have a higher risk of developing blood clots during flying. Another way to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis if you are flying when pregnant is to increase blood circulation by wearing tight stockings or special socks that come up to your thighs.
