Hello XXXXXXX i would advise against any long journeys via train or car at this stage. With any type of low lying placenta, its difficult to say when there may be hemorrhage. Any undue risks, jerking, stress etc can caure bleeding. Ideally pt needs to take XXXXXXX rest. In case you have to travel in urgency, take all precautions. Make sure the journey is smooth. Take breaks. And do inform your doctor about it.
