Many women choose to travel each year to the United States during their pregnancy to achieve having their child on the United States.

And yes, it is legal and anyone born on US regardless of their immigration status immediately obtains citizenship.

This situation has led many families to choose to get a tourist visa with which to travel and have their children in America, in order to get them a citizenship.

And although this has become increasingly common some airlines have placed certain restrictions for pregnant women who want to travel, in particular to avoid birth while in the air, and having to force the plane to stop in an unscheduled destination or divert its path.

Some airlines are establishing restrictions on pregnant women because deliveries have increased during flights that have caused the plane to land or divert its route.

If you are pregnant and the plan is to travel to the United States, there are several recommendations to consider

  1. It is recommended that every pregnant woman who wants to travel had to do it in the second trimester (14-27 weeks) of pregnancy. To avoid health concerns for the mother and the baby.
  2. If a woman has more than 27 weeks but still want to travel, it is recommended that they visit a gynecologist beforehand to avoid complications.
  3. It is important to note that some airlines will not let women with over 36 weeks of pregnancy through, since giving birth in the plane is much more likely.
  4. Wherever the pregnant woman go, she must have a doctor’s note with health informationand the approximate date of birth, to avoid problems with the airline.
  5. When traveling, women can request a seat in the front row, this way she can travel much more peacefully, with space and comfort
  6.  It is said that airport scanners are not dangerous, because its radiation is weak, but the woman can request a physical examination that does not involve going through the machine.
