high altitude hiking and pregnancy

We are going on a 5 day hike in 3 weeks from the Northern berg to central berg, it requires that we carry heavy packs up steep inclines and declines. My friend has just found out that she is pregnant ( 7weeks) would you advice that she coiuld go? or will it be safe for her not to hike?

Kind regards
Tamsyn

I would suggest that she does not do the hike. It sounds too strenuous.

Best wishes
