Tips for Traveling While Pregnant

Summer is synonymous with adventure, but for expecting Mamas,, hitting the road (or skies) requires a bit of strategic planning. Whether you're jet-setting to exotic locales or embarking on a relaxing road trip, I've compiled a list of savvy traveling tips tailored specifically for those sporting a baby bump during the sun-drenched months. From comfortable attire suggestions to hydration hacks and safety precautions, these pointers will ensure that your summer travels are as smooth as that pregnancy glow. So, buckle up (literally!) and get ready to embark on a journey that celebrates both your wanderlust and the miracle of impending motherhood.

Let's be honest: Summer heat and pregnancy do not mix well. It's so important to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! That's why we're opting for an Owala water bottle, which is easy to carry and fits almost anywhere! As a bonus, it's BPA-free, spill resistant, and insulated. Increasing water intake and electrolytes will help keep summer at bay!

If you’re still able to fly, Mama, this foot hammock will be perfect for you (pregnant or not)! If you're a petite Mama, super pregnant, or just need to give those dang feet a break, this invention works wonders. In the sky or not!

So you’re still nauseous, huh? It’s hard to make nausea tea outside the kitchen (plus its like, 99 degrees), so instead take these nausea drops with you. Perfect for on-the-go!

Extra high-protein snacks are also super important! You’ll need fuel to keep up with the summer antics. Bring those dates along the journey (IYKYK)!

Compression socks can help minimize the risk of blood clots during long periods of sitting, such as during car rides or flights, keeping your legs feeling fresh and energized!

This neck pillow is major and will give you much needed support either in the car or by plane. Or, this back pillow can help relieve pain in the car, office chair, air plane, the couch, or wherever you seek comfort.

So, belly bands are like superheroes for your bump. They give amazing support to your growing belly, easing the strain on your back and hips, which can be a total game-changer, especially in the later stages of pregnancy. Plus, they offer this cozy, snug feeling that makes you feel more secure and comfortable as you rock that baby ump like a boss. Trust, me, once you try one, you won't want to go without it!
