Pregnancy and travelling in the third trimester

Patient: Good day My wife is now 37 weeks pregnant and want to travel via motor vehile more than 250 miles away from her doctor.would you advise the trip or not

Doctor: I would not advice a long trip this close to the due date and so late in the third trimester. If the trip is absolutely necessary then see to it that you have a contact of a doctor or hospital in the area where you are planning to go and have all the neccesities in case of an emergent delivery. All the best.
