Having a temperature above 102 degrees F during pregnancy has been associated with spinal malformations on developing babies. Your body temperature in a tanning bed always exceeds 102 degrees F. So why would you want to take chance of causing a serious birth defect to your baby?
There are also concerns that lying on your back too long can restrict blood to your heart and thus to your baby. When this happens, youíll know because youíll become light headed. Restricting blood to your baby can have serious consequences.
Finally, pregnant woman with sensitive skin are more prone to chloasma. Chloasma are those dark skin splotches that appear on face and arms during pregnancy. Perhaps not dangerous to baby but certainly not attractive and thatís what this tanning thing is all about right? Looking better.
From moment you found out you were pregnant, health of your baby became your biggest concern. You stopped socially drink, if you were a smoker you quit smoking. You started eating healthier and exercising regularly. You started taking better care of yourself for both of you.
So why would you risk unknown, just to have a tan. Yes I admit a tan does make you feel good about yourself. Thereís something about deeply tanned skin that makes one feel attractive. But you can get that beautiful tan right from a bottle or from a spray tan booth. The sunless tanning has been shown to have no bad effects to your baby. So you can have best of both worlds.
You can have that wonderful glow that pregnancy brings to a woman and you can have that tan you so desire. Take good care of yourself and your baby!
