As pregnancy is not an illness, air travel does not usually present
health concerns for pregnant women. However, we recommend careful
planning in consideration of your destination and schedule.

-Consult with your doctor if you have any systems such as bleeding or morning sickness, or if you have any complications including threatened miscarriage, anemia, or toxemia of pregnancy during pregnancy.

Taking a flight directly after scuba diving poses a risk of
decompression sickness, as onboard air pressure is less that that on
the ground. The initial symptom of the illness is joint pain in the
hands and feet.
Passengers with Additional Oxygen
If you cannot walk 50 m without experiencing shortness of breath, it is
recommended that you have your lung function checked. The easiest way
to check lung function is to measure your arterial blood oxygen
pressure(PaO2). Consider using additional oxygen during the flight if
your PaO2 on the ground is less than 70 torr, or if you suffer from
unstable angina, congenital heart disease with cyanosis, or heart
disease with pulmonary hypertension.
