If you are pregnant, there are things you should know about pregnancy and tanning booths. Tanning beds safety while pregnant has become very questionable. A better choice might be to use sunless tanning spray booth equipment to keep your golden tan.
Initially it was believed that use of a tanning bed after first trimester was okay. During first trimester concern was about overheating yourself and baby. However, in past few years health officials are taking a harder stance and are encouraging pregnant women to not use tanning bed at all.

Tanning beds have been directly linked to skin cancer. So if you can increase your risk of skin cancer, doctors are becoming concerned that you may also increase your baby’s risk.
One very big concern with direct implications to your baby is “heat”. Lying in a tanning bed raises your body temperature. The increase in body temperature can be hazardous, even deadly to your baby. Studies have shown first trimester to be period of highest risk. However, many doctors believe that risk continues throughout pregnancy.
