    I cannot give you any clinical advice such as whether you can travel, but as for how you can prepare yourself, you will find a wealth of information on the "New & Expectant Parents" section of the Lamaze website on how to have a safe and healthy birth. And, in fact, there is a certified Lamaze educator in Germany. I would get in touch with her. Even if she isn't local to you, she may be able to help you further with finding out about your options in Germany.
