Week trip to Europe while Pregnant - Recommendations

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have blocked off June 10th through June 17th of this year (2012) to take a week trip somewhere. It's coming up fast and we have nothing plannet yet. She will be just over 5 months pregnant. We'd prefer to go to Europe versus somewhere in America (where we live). Obviously being pregnant limits where we would want to go because we don't want to go to a country where we don't feel comfortable with the quality of medical care. Two of the countries we were excited to go to next were Prague and Turkey but I haven't the slightest idea if that is a bad idea or not (in that you would want to avoid going to a hospital there while pregnant). We have traveled extensively so I really don't mean to be offensive when I pose that question. I just want to err on the side of caution and not put ourselves in a bad position if she required medical help.

We have pretty much ruled out France or Italy simply because we've hit the main cities and, while the more relaxed side regions sound amazing, I think my wife would go nuts not being able to drink any of the delicious wine! :)

I'm keeping this very open ended on purpose just to hear a variety of suggestions on where to go and what to do.

Lastly, I know a week is just not enough time, but that is all we have available to us vacation wise.
