Welcome and thanks for the query

No it is not safe to travel if there is any history of miscarriage.

If it is unavoidable then you should take tablet isoxsuprine hydrochloride and continue it throughout the first trimester. Take this tablet under doctor's prescription.

Tablet progesterone should also be taken under doctor's prescription and guidance.

It is better if you avoid any journey up to 12 weeks.

Train is better than bus and car but 9 hrs is a long duration.

Do not forget to take folic acid supplements.

Best wishes

Take care
