Can airplane cabin pressure harm my baby?

Can airplane cabin pressure harm my baby?

No...but: The changes in cabin pressure as the plane rises and falls can make a child miserable.

Can a pregnant woman (13 weeks) travel in an airplane? I have an unknown cause of severe neutropenia. Can the flight harm the baby?

Talk to your OB: Talk to your "high risk" obstetrician (ob). I'm not an ob, but usually not a flight issue if okay with ob.

First questions would be -- how long in duration, cyclic in nature (eg, every 3 weeks), any increased infectious, famiiy history, prior bone marrow biopsy, and medication use. ...Read more
