I’m pregnant and want to go on a high altitude adventure. Is this wise ?

We do not know about the effects of altitude on pregnancy to either the lowlander mother or the fetus. If there was a mishap in the pregnancy outcome that could be attributed to altitude, would you blame yourself? Then limit altitude exposure to 10,000 to 12000 feet (3050 to 3660 meters) and ascend slowly, so you don’t seriously compromise the amount of oxygen carried in the blood. A miscarriage in a remote area would be scary for most women.
