Healthy Mamas Monday: Travel Tips!

Dr. Spock has been a go-to medical reference for moms and moms-to-be since many were babies themselves. But did you know he has a website chock full of tips? There's great medical info about tons and tons of pregnancy and child related topics, but here's a really useful article on travel tips for pregnant women. The author, Dr. Marjorie Greenfield, suggests the following:

-Whether traveling by plane, train or automobile, make sure to take the time to get up and stretch your legs.
-Your second trimester is the ideal time to travel.
-When traveling by plane, some airlines are reticent to allow very visibly pregnant women to travel for fear that they might go into labor. It's always a good idea to bring a note from your doctor to prove you're a-ok to fly!
