Hello Doctor,

My wife is 7 month (7th just started) pregnant. We have to travel from Bangalore to Pune urgently but train tickets are not available. So I want to ask if we travel by multi-excel volovo speeper coach, would it be safe? It is 12-13 hours of journey.

I am not able to contact the my regular doctor.

Can you please guide me on this

Train is always better than bus journey. If possible try to travel by flight (usually they allow air travel until 34 weeks of uncomplicated pregnancy).

Long hours of bus journey are better to avoid if possible.

Do let me know if you have more concerns.

Good luck.
