Before you travel, check the availability and standards of medical facilities at your destination. It is worth remembering that the medical staff may not speak English very well. Make sure they are aware you are pregnant. If you go into labor while you are away you may need a
blood transfusion, therefore it is advisable to check if the country you are traveling to routinely screens
blood donations for HIV and Hepatitis B.
