Is It Safe to Experience Helicopter Ride While Pregnant?

As it’s very known that during pregnancy there is a state of boredom that hit every mother, especially in the last phase. Each mother tries to discover many activities that are safe for the baby, and to relief some of the pregnancy stress.
Which brings us to our main concern is it safe to go for a helicopter ride while pregnant? It would be unfair to visit Dubai and not get the chance to take a look from above.
Along with, witnessing the most important landmarks, it is completely not harmful to travel or take a ride while being pregnant.
There is no evidence to suggest that the variations in air pressure or the drop in humidity have a detrimental effect on you or your baby.
If your pregnancy has been uncomplicated and you are in good health throughout the entire process, however, it's possible that lengthy flights can raise your risk of getting a blood clot.
So, can you ride in a helicopter while being pregnant? It requires the doctor’s consultation, and taking a small ride if it’s possible.

Effects of cabin pressure on pregnancy

There are things that you can take to lower the likelihood of anything like having a blood clot during your helicopter tour.
Although, there is no proof that flying will cause you to miscarry, go into early labor, or have your waters rupture earlier than expected.
As long as are not experiencing any complications with your pregnancy, flying sometimes while you are carrying a child is safe for both you and your unborn child.
Yet, in the event that you require urgent medical attention, you should make sure you are familiar with the medical facilities that are there at your location.

Things to put in mind when going on a helicopter ride while pregnant?

1-The Pilot
Make sure you helicopter pilot s skilled professionals with extensive training and flight time.
He has repeatedly flown the same route in the same helicopter under various weather conditions. 

2-The Helicopter
You can watch that each helicopter goes through a series of testing prior to every flight if you arrive at the airport early.
Only until the helicopter maintenance engineers have determined that it is airworthy following refueling, and only then, is the helicopter allowed to take off.

3-Know the in-flight safety procedures
Helicopters are equipped with a variety of in-flight safety features for the protection of the passengers.
All passengers must be buckled up the entire journey to prevent them from being thrown around as the helicopters swoop and serve.
In order to converse with the Pilot and block out helicopter noise, everyone is also given noise-canceling headphones.
