Travel Insurance


Are you sure you, are insured when you travel whilst pregnant?

Thankyou to Claire for sharing your findings on this subject.

“Hi Laura

I found out that a lot of basic travel insurances won’t cover premature birth, and why this couple might be facing £100k in costs.

When I traveled abroad when pregnant I paid for an additional policy that did cover prem birth. And I only found out about this by accident when I called my insurance company to tell them I was pregnant.

Might be something to make expectant mothers aware about?

I saw this story on the BBC News iPhone App and thought you should see it:

Premature baby pair ‘stranded in US’

A British couple whose baby was born prematurely during a trip to the USA say they expect to be stranded there for three months.

It is worth checking the policy as each every pregnancy is different circumstance and every individual has different medical history.

This is the company I insured through. I spoke to them in person to go through everything to make sure I was covered.”
