Hi Anil, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum. Have you done your wife's preliminary investigations and consulted your obstetrician. If everything is fine there is no problem in travelling. Ask her to take a short walk in between travel ansd not to sit continously. Good luck.

dear Anil,during pregnancy travel needs to avoided if you can.Still during 2nd trimester traveling can be done with precautions.If everything is normal you can speak to your doctor and if he is satisfied with every thing you can go ahead for a nice vacation.Please avoid jerks during journey and be very careful about food and water.take care.
