Pregnancy is a beautiful period for any women, it is a blessing from above which cannot be expressed in words. Being pregnant however, doesn’t mean that you stop living or stop being yourself. It just means that you are now responsible for two lives – your own and also for your child.

Thus, there are many pregnant women who would like to migrate to Canada irrespective of the fact that they are pregnant and would like to go ahead with the plan of immigrating to Canada rather than postpone the decision.

While travelling your vaccination chart and medical records should be with you at all times and your personal health, distance, destination and present risk involved all should be taken into consideration by the doctor.
