Talk with your doctor before planning any travel. Just to be on the safe side though, travel with your prenatal medical records.
Toss any harmful chemicals before or as soon as you get pregnant. This means laundry detergent, dish soap, and window cleaners, as a start. If possible, use natural alternatives. After you have your child, try to keep these things away anyways so that the child can be safe.

Visit the hospital you plan on giving birth in. Tour the facility and become acquainted with the staff. This should put you at ease since you have a better idea of what to expect.
