How protected is the baby in the womb from bumps?
The amniotic sac is filled with clear, pale, straw-coloured fluid in which the unborn baby floats and moves. The amniotic fluid helps to cushion the baby from bumps and injury, and maintains constant temperature for the baby. It also helps your baby’s lungs, digestive system and musculoskeletal system to develop.

Most airlines allow pregnant women to travel through their eighth month. Traveling during the ninth month is usually allowed if there is permission from your health care provider.

There’s no reason not to travel by car when you’re pregnant, but you may need plenty of toilet stops on a longer journey! As above, stretch your legs when you can and take plenty of breaks. Make sure you always have your mobile handy and, as you near your due date, take your pregnancy documents with you on long trips.
