Can anyone recommend a travel insurance plan that will cover pregnancy complications?
In August 2015, I won a round-trip flight for two anywhere West Jet flies. I found out I was pregnant shortly after (September 2015).
Since the flight had a one year expiry, and I do not want to travel with a new born, I booked the trip to Hawaii (when I was 5 weeks pregnant) for January-February 2016, making me 23 weeks pregnant at the time of trip (which is a perfectly safe time to fly).
Last week, at 19 weeks pregnant, I was diagnosed with a low-lying placenta. Asked my doctor if I am still okay to go on my trip and she said yes. But I've been reading a lot on-line, and while some women with my condition have reported no problems flying, some have said that pressure from being in the air has caused bleeding and other complications...
I was obviously planning on getting travel insurance anyways, but now with the recent complication, it's very important that I do. However, all the plans I've started looking at don't cover any emergencies that have to do with pregnancy.
Can anyone recommend a travel insurance plan that will cover anything pregnancy-related? Cost really isn't an issue...
I would hate to have to cancel this trip, although it's looking like it may be a possibility. I would forfeit the flight, but I didn't pay for it anyways so no loss there. I think I have 2 more weeks before I can cancel my hotel reservation in Hawaii. Hotel room in Vancouver during 16 hour layover on the way there is non-refundable, but that's only a couple hundred bucks.
Any recommendations/advice would be really appreciated!
This was supposed to be a trip of a lifetime before I become a mother for the first time...now I am feeling very anxious/stressed about everything to do with this trip!!
