Safety in Pregnancy

Staying Safe During your Pregnancy

Seat Belt Safety

Always wear your seat belt while driving, positioning the lap belt under your belly and across your hips.


Hot Tubs and Saunas

Avoid hot tubs and saunas as they can raise your body temperature, which is not recommended during pregnancy.


Maximum Bath Water Temperature

Set the water temperature below 100°F (37.8°C) to prevent overheating.


Sleeping Position

We encourage you to sleep in what ever position is comfortable in pregnancy.  Some women may feel dizzy or faint if sleeping on their back later in pregnancy.  To prevent this you can place a pillow under your right side to reposition.  You may also consider placing a pillow between your legs and under your belly for comfort. 


Insect Repellant

EPA registered insect repellants are safe in pregnancy when used according to directions.  These include sprays containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or paramenthane-diol.

Hair Dye

Hair dye and hair styling products are generally considered safe in pregnancy.  We recommend using these products in a well ventilated area.
