At what point in the pregnancy is it acceptable to request no travel? At what point did most of you stop traveling? Also was it because of a doctors note versus the physical exhaustion?

I was told by my doctor I could travel up through 35 weeks. I’ll be finishing my current travel case around 28 weeks, unless I can find a very short case with my normal group of partners, I’ll likely ask to do something local

I stopped at 34... I was just done.

I stopped at 35 weeks. Pwc makes you take off two weeks prior to delivery date anyway

If you’re at PwC in California (not sure if any other states too), you get 4 weeks paid time off before due date.

My last flight will be around 27 weeks but I don’t travel weekly. I know others who flew until 30-36 weeks weekly. It depends on you and your pregnancy

See what your doc says. I stopped at 32, and the few weeks before that were uncomfortable.

I stopped at 36 weeks. Make sure you look up the best NICU in your travel city and take copies of your medical records just in case. I’d ask my doctor to print them out after each appointment and I’d scan them to have an electronic copy

I stopped at 36 just in case anything were to happen while on the road. But good idea from SC1 about the doc in your travel city. Better to be safe!

You are all so brave. I am at 18 weeks traveling every week but want to stop in atleast another two months (28 weeks) wonder if that will be looked down upon if I bring it up with the partner

Don’t be afraid, this doesn’t happen often. I asked for no travel weeks 6-12 of pregnancy because of some high risks (“personal reasons”) team totally understood

I traveled until 33 weeks. It was miserable.

Traveled to 30 weeks and talked with project management so that I could be remote or work out of local office. Just got too large for seats haha

My doctor told me I couldn’t travel starting at 24 weeks due to some high risk issues and it was not a problem. I just told my partners and HR via email and they were 100% supportive.

^ same PwC 5. My issues were from weeks 6-12 (modified bed rest) team was totally supportive without needing details

Doc said 35. My last flights were 28 (international) and 32 (domestic)
