Q: I'm preggers! When is the latest I can fly?

Lezlie says...
Air Canada says up to and including the 36th week of a "normal" pregnancy if the flyer has no history of premature labour. After that, pregnant women need a medical certificate to get on board. WestJet says you can go for it anytime, but women will need a physician's note confirming that they are acceptable for travel after 32 weeks. Other companies vary, so check with the airline before you book. There are no significant dangers from air travel for healthy pregnant women, but it's always best to check with your doctor before you fly.
