I'll be 25 weeks when we fly. Only an hours flight but I'm not sure if I should with a low lying placenta? Iv not been bleeding, hopefully it stays that way!

I had a low lying placenta and flew long haul when I was 16/18 weeks and short haul at 20something weeks. I didn't have placenta praevia though, that might make a difference.

Yes, I flew at 22 weeks. Midwife was fine about it

I had placenta praevia with both DD1&2 ( DC 2&3 separate pregnancies)

With DD1 I was given no advice.

With DD2 I was told AAT 21 weeks I couldn't fly, push a shopping trolley, work, have sex........

I suggest asking your midwife. That way you are covered for travel insurance.
