In brief: No!

Most airlines require a doctors' note to travel on their airline after 7 months of pregnancy for an emergency flight such as a bereavement(loss of loved one and funeral).
The huge risk is premature labor and delivery sometimes in flight for which no airline wants to accept that responsibility for the risks to the mother and infant.
