Consult your healthcare provider first (if you have one). Do this step to make sure that you are already having a safe pregnancy with no complications and are safe to travel to wherever it may be and however you may get there.
Consider your prenatal test schedule (if you have one). You need to think about possible important tests you many have coming up that may help you baby or pregnancy. Maybe it wouldn’t be the best thing if you missed some of these important appointments. So make your travel plans when you don’t have a lot going on.
Get together your health records and vital information. You will need this if anything horrific was to happen. If you go into labour and get rushed to the nearest hospital it will be a lot faster if you have all of this information that way there are not too many questions flying around and things get mixed up.

Make sure you have all your medications you may need. Many pregnant women take prenatal to give their baby all the vitamins they need. Some women need other medications that they need to take that will help their pregnancy run more smoothly. It is very important to remember to bring these very important medications/vitamins.
Check your health insurance policy! You need to make sure it covers pregnancy complications that may happen when you travel, especially if you’re going to foreign countries.
Buy travel insurance, this special insurance covers expenses if you miss all or part of your trip, or run up emergency expenses on the road. Make sure the policy covers pregnancy complications as well as emergency medical transport from your chosen destination(s).
