Is it safe to go on a boat while pregnant?

Yes: Boats are safe if you take precautions. Be sure to wear a life preserver while you are the boat and stay safe. You may have more motion sickness while pregnant but it is okay to take dramamine (dimenhydrinate) or use an accupressure band for the nausea.

Pregnancy (Definition)

Hello. I'm 25 weeks pregnant and got invited to go boating. It's a 52ft yacht, the cruise will take up to 4h.Is it safe do it? Than You Aneta.

Its safe: It should be safe to take a ride in a 52 foot yacht while you are pregnant at 25 weeks. The major danger to your pregnancy on such a trip would be too much alcohol and the company you keep. Sounds fun! Best wishes!

Can a pregnant woman go on a boat?

Can a pregnant woman go on a boat?

Yes: A pregnant woman can go on a boat. If it is small she should wear a life preserver. If there are rough seas or there will be a lot of pounding (i.e. High speed boat) then it would be better to avoid the boat ride. If she is already suffering from morning sickness, a boat ride might exacerbate this.

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??

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??

No: Commercial air and boat travel during pregnancy is considered safe for women who have healthy pregnancies. Still, it's best to check with your Ob. 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!

Boating and pregnancy? A cruise on a pontune boat vs high speed boating on choppy river/lake?

Not for mom or kids.: Jolts from the boat, dirty water, excessive sun and heat can be dangerous whether a person is pregnant or not. There are safer ways to enjoy nature when "with child" or with family!

Hyperthermia, dehydr: Hyperthermia and dehydration could affect you fetus in a permanent and temporary sense, respectively. I would strongly recommend avoiding exposure to such punishing weather for any amount of time during pregnancy! maintaining normothermia and good hydration are essential to a good pregnancy outcome. Stay in air-conditioned spaces while pregnant!

Is it safe to go on a plane while pregnant? If yes until what month?

Yes. Last month.: Unless prohibited by your OB doc plane travel is safe up until near delivery. Airlines define this differently but generally about 1 month prior to delivery requires a permission slip. If you are a high risk pregnancy you should stay on the ground.

Don't Do It!!: The decelerating forces and sudden drops are enough to cause ligament trauma, pelvic pressure/pain, & worst of all - placental separation which is very dangerous (abruption). It's best to avoid roller-coasters during your entire pregnancy.

Is it safe to go on a small roller coaster (space mountain) at five weeks pregnant since the fetus is so small and the placenta hasn't yet formed?

Fetus at Space mtn.: Really, you would jeopardize a 9 month viable pregnancy over a 3 minute roller coaster ride? The amusement park usually posts a sign that says that they are not responsible for pregnant women should there be an adverse occurrence. Take a hint, not a good idea.
