The policy will not cover any claims relating to normal pregnancy or normal childbirth.
Please note we will not cover denial of boarding by your carrier, so you should check that you will be able to travel with the carrier/airline in advance.
It is essential, if at the time of booking your trip you are aware that you are pregnant, that you ensure that you are able to have the required vaccinations for that trip; no cover will be provided for cancellation in the event that, after booking you discover travel is advised against, or you are unable to receive the appropriate and required vaccinations for that country.
Please make sure your Medical Practitioner and Midwife are aware of your travel plans, and that there are no known complications and you are fit to undertake the planned trip.
