Any travel over 3 hours can lead to complications like deep vein thrombosis, starting from early pregnancy to until 6 weeks post delivery. To avoid this, she can use special stockings called TED stockings, above knee, hydrate herself well during the journey, and walk whenever it is safe to do so during the journey. Also make sure her pregnancy is uncomplicated before traveling.
