1st Trimester safe: Unless you have severe anemia (hemoglobin of less than 8.5 gm%) or sickle cell disease/trait, the reduced cabin oxygen pressure will not cause harm to you or your fetus. If your blood count is reduced more than 25% to 30%, however, you may require pre-travel treatment of the anemia and/or supplemental oxygen en route, .
