MANGO’S 5 TOP TIPS FOR PREGNANT GUESTS

To ensure that your flight is as pleasant and comfortable as possible we've compiled a list of our top tips.

  1. Place the seat belt below your belly for maximum comfort
  2. Book or ask to be seated in an aisle seat for easy access to the bathroom facilities
  3. Walk around the cabin hourly, this helps with circulation
  4. Stretch and flex your feet and legs in your seat every half an hour
  5. Drink plenty of fluids.

It is advised that all expectant mothers carry emergency contact details relating to their pregnancy, and a copy of your prenatal chart if you are in your second or third trimester.

Commercial flights are normally safe for mother and baby. However, air travel is not recommended as stipulated above and until 7 days after delivery.
