I'm going to need one of these very soon and have a rather silly question. When the air lines talk about having doctor's permission ie " You may travel up to week 28 of pregnancy with your doctor's written permission. " do they mean consultant, gp or any old dr you can find? (I do the latter for another condition I have).
Hospital have said up to 28 weeks is fine (I'm expecting twins and am high risk for other things) but getting a letter out of them is often difficult and likely to have my name spelt wrong.
I've not ever needed to do this, but I would assume it can be from any medical professional as isn't it just confirmation that you are X number of weeks (rather than any more detailed statement about your specific state of health/risk factors)? So I would imagine confirmation from your GP would be fine.
I did this recently, and the airline had a form that you fill out and get your gp to sign. Basically it is just to confirm you are 28 weeks or under. I was 31 weeks flying out and 32 coming back, I was quite the novelty on the plane
