Lisa Marie Presley Travels While Preggers - So Can You!

Babymoons - the best way to celebrate parenthood

We think Lisa Marie Presley needs to get over herself and start celebrating the new life she's growing in there. Maybe a Caribbean cruise with her current hubby, Michael Lockwood, slathering her in sunscreen would get her mind off the Daily Mail. What about a mountain hideaway, snuggled up by the fire for days on end?

LMP - Travels While PregnantLMP - Travels While PregnantIf you're pregnant like Lisa and considering a Babymoon, now's the perfect time. Not sure how to navigate a safe trip for you and your bump? Let us help.

Preplanning

Get the green light from your healthcare provider. If you have a high-risk pregnancy, your doctor may tell you to wait until after delivery. Don't forget to ask for a copy of your prenatal records in case of an emergency (blood type, special conditions like diabetes, asthma or seizures).

Check with the airline - some won't allow travel after 36 weeks of pregnancy.

Pack any medications you'll need - that includes OTC remedies for heartburn, constipation and swelling.

Make sure your health insurance is up to date and covers your baby (if you give birth at 25 weeks, your baby will need specialized and expensive care).

Get "Cancellation Insurance" just in case!

Research medical facilities at your vacation destination before leaving home.

 

While Traveling

Stay hydrated and avoid high caffeine, artificially sweetened and carbonated drinks. Keep a water bottle with you all the time. You'll be amazed how often you refill it without even noticing how much you're drinking.

Pack healthy snacks. Go for foods that offer the highest nutritional punch: dried fruit, apples and peanut butter and juices made from 100% fruit juice.

Be prepared for altitude sickness because of your increased blood volume.

Be Wary of Dangerous destinations

Most holiday destinations are safe for travel, but pregnancy means you'll have special concerns your travel agent may not be aware of.

If you live at an altitude below 5,000 feet and visit areas above 8,000 feet, consider the possibility of altitude sickness. Signs and symptoms of altitude sickness include insomnia, lassitude (weariness, lethargy or listlessness), headache, nausea, and vomiting.

Avoid strenuous exercise at higher altitude levels.

Avoid destinations where life-threatening food or insect-borne infections are common, where malaria is endemic and places where live-virus vaccines are required before a visit.

Ready to hit the road with your partner and your bump? Tell us where you're going (or where you've gone) and what you did. It's all about you, Baby!
