Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

Yes it is safe to fly

Dr. K. :

Airlines do not restrict air travel at 24 weeks

A low lying placenta does not make you high risk at 24 weeks.

Dr. K. :

It would only make you at increased risk of bleeding if you were close to delivery.
