    Pregnancy Journey

    Coronavirus, pregnancy, and New Year travel, how to balance all three at the same time? 

    Written on 23 December 2020

    Our lives have changed upside down since the coronavirus broke out. Face masks and sanitizers have made it to our handbag as essentials and reading about affected people has become a morning ritual. With this global pandemic eruption, traveling seemed an impossible radical but now having the new year around the corner, we need to work around this. Travel with restrictions has been initiated but you need to be a hundred times more careful if you have another life breathing inside you.

    First-hand advice

    The experts suggest you not to travel unnecessarily to be exposed to this fatal infection because you are pregnant and more vulnerable. But if you must travel for unavoidable reasons, make sure to discuss with your gynaecologist. Suggestions mentioned below will help you through your travel-

    1. The phase

    During pregnancy, mostly your travel depends upon which trimester are you in. Generally, the second trimester is considered safe for traveling because by now your body has retained its energy and the morning sickness would have improved. And later in the pregnancy, it will be difficult to move around or sit for longer hours.

    1. Covid-19 Guidelines

    During the planning stage of the trip itself, you must gather information about the Corona-specific guidelines of your origin and destination- like if you need to provide a corona negative certificate upon arrival or the number of days you need to stay quarantines, etc. because it differs for different places.

    1. Mode of travel

    Since this infection can be dodged with social distancing, you must prefer to travel by your private vehicle or the least possible public interaction. As a pregnant woman, you will feel more comfortable in your own vehicle.

    1. Destination selection

    You must select your destination wisely because some places are more affected than others. Try to go to a place which is less touristic and populated.

    1. “Touch prone” places

    Some things are touched by anyone and everyone without realization, such as railings, doorknobs, or lift buttons, etc. so try not to touch them. Or if you must touch, first wipe them with a disinfectant and don’t forget to sanitize your hands later.

    1. Cleanliness alert

    You must have been following the cleanliness rituals anyway to keep your baby safe from other infections too. But with the Coronavirus, you need to be all the more cautious and often wash your hands with soap for about 20-sec. Don’t touch your face habitually.

    Stay Safe. Stay Healthy!
