Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. Short distance traveling (1 to 2 hrs) may be allowed in the first trimester if she gets a comfortable seat and her vitals are within normal range. However, long distance journey by flight, bus or train should be avoided as much as possible during early week of pregnancy (up to 12 weeks). First trimester is more vulnerable for miscarriage or pregnancy loss. Therefore, she needs to be more careful during this time. Do periodic check up and consult with her gynecologist regarding this. Hope, I have answered your query. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish her good health and take care yourself.
