Pregnancy and Tanning Bed - Think Before You Tan

With summer coming near, you would love to put on those cute maternity sun dresses, however you do not wish to show off your pale white skin. You may be asking yourself if tanning while having a baby inside you is a smart move?

At present, you want to decide if you can tan without putting your child in danger. Tanning beds during pregnancy are just as safe as tanning outside in the direct sunlight, but is either doing any harm to your child?

At this time there are no studies on the effects of tanning beds on the unborn toddler, so anything you hear is nothing but merely myths or theroies. Many believe that the UV light utilized in tanning beds does not reach the toddler, so your young child isn't at risk.

Yet others caution that we still could be putting our child at risk since we do not have any concreate studies that prove it is truely safe.

When you are in your 1st trimester your doctor will counsel you not to do anything that will raise your body's temperature. This even includes hot tubs, saunas, and tanning beds. Overall you have to use your best judgement, and talk to your specific doctor to get medical advice.

The bottom line to remember is to keep your body cool and drink plenty of water. Your skin when you are pregnant is very sensitive to burning, so if you do decide to tan you should begin with short sessions.

Ultimately, your unborn child is more important than having a tan so take your medical professionals opinion into account and do what you think is best.
