Before embarking on your trip, have your attending physician complete, sign and stamp the Medical Information Form (MEDIF) not more than seven days prior to your departure date.
You will need a MEDIF if:
- You are in the last four weeks of your pregnancy
- You have medical complications related to your pregnancy

If you are traveling with a companion (recommended after the 28th week), request that he/she be seated next to you to assist you throughout your trip.
In flight, do not over-tighten the seat belt and keep it fastened higher than usual.
Promote blood circulation: wear support stockings and massage your legs from time to time. If possible, choose an aisle seat so that you are free to move around. During the flight, drink plenty of water and avoid carbonated beverages.
