Travel while you are pregnant
If you are pregnant, it is important to check with your doctor for advice on traveling. However, finding insurance can be a problem, since travel insurance companies see pregnant travelers as high risk group. Most travel insurance providers will insure up to 9 weeks before expected date of delivery , beyond this, it becomes more difficult. Therefore it is important to look at the insurance policy fine prints to understand what is not covered in their exclusions.
