At an altitude of 2,500 meters (8202 feet), the amount of oxygen is thin. Your child will receive less oxygen, and you will be a bit more tired than normal. You should be very healthy to be able to handle this with your baby, but doctors don’t recommend anything like this. Remember your little package of joy is more important than being above that height for any reason.
- Being pregnant, your body will react differently to altitudes this high. Lay down if you begin to feel short of breath, dizziness, headache. If the condition persists, ask for, or find a doctor.
- High-altitudes can be a danger for some pregnant women. If you have hypertension, preeclampsia, or other complications its best to check with your doctor before you travel.
- Living at 2,500 meters (8202 feet) above sea level, your body will already be used to a lack of oxygen and has already compensated for this with your baby. You should not worry as long as you’re healthy, your child should be born healthy as well.
