I'm pregnant and I'm planing to travel to maldives island I will be 28 weeks of pregnancy by plane and also fast boat,, I want to know is it risky ??

If your pregnancy is considered high risk or you're at risk of preterm labor, your Ob might restrict travel. 28 weeks is a time when the risk of pre-term labor is low, so you are probably safe. Sounds like a wonderful trip! Have a great time! ...Read more
