If you are planning to travel abroad, you should discuss flying, vaccinations and travel insurance with your midwife or doctor. Long-haul flights can increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis. We would advise women to take Aspirin 75mg half an hour prior to a flight, to wear support stockings, drink plenty of water and walk about as much as possible during the flight.
