In brief: Depends on where
Some developing countries have highly developed areas with excellent medical care, beautiful hotels and clean food.
Some developed countries have areas with poor water and lack of access to medical care. Speak to your health departement about any shots, etc you may need. The area should have hospitals that can care for you and the baby.Avoid travel anywhere during the last month of the pregnancy.

In brief: No.
I would avoid all travel to developing countries during pregnancy and the postpartum/lactation period if possible.
Focus on safety for mother and baby and avoid unnecessary risks with exposure to traveler's diarrhea, exotic pathogens, dehydration, exhaustion, poor healthcare, stress and fatigue. Travel can wait - pregnancy is not that long.

You need to discuss this with your ob.
Certain countries require specific medications before, during, and after travel, and others may require vaccines. Those medications and/or vaccines may not be recommended during pregnancy.
