Safe flight

Chat - - Health -

Q We’re visit­ing fam­ily abroad for Christ­mas but I’m preg­nant – is it safe to fly? Can­dida, 30

A Most air­lines let you fly up to about 36 weeks of preg­nancy (32 weeks with twins), though they might ask for a let­ter from your GP. Fly­ing’s gen­er­ally safe, but there’s a slightly greater risk of a blood clot in your legs, which you can re­duce by wear­ing flight socks.
