Say a woman is 3-4 months pregnant. How safe and reliable is to visit countries such as Nepal or Cuba?
I did some research on vaccines to be injected (Asociación de Médicos de Sanidad Exterior - Viajeras embarazadas (in Spanish)) and apparently:
- Some of them are not recommended to be injected in expecting women: flu, for example.
- For many others it is stated that the risk should be ballanced with the need: polio, yellow fever, typhoid fever.
- Finally, others should not represent any problem: Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B.
Regarding the altitude (in case of Nepal), I read that until 3,000 - 3,500 m above sea level there should not be problems.
Regarding the heat, apparently it is dangerous if it is extreme.
So, what other aspects should be taken into consideration? How possible is to visit countries like Nepal and Cuba at this state of pregnancy?
I could not find information about pregnancy in the following links from Traveler's health website:
