Re: PREGNANT

A 20 min session is not going to raise her core temp, she is NOT in a hot tub or a microwave. However always have them talk to their doc...

Re: PREGNANT

Good point Ladybug, the customer should talk to their physician first just as an added safety measure. I have only had a few pregnant gals tan, but all of them came in with notes from their doctors first.

Re: PREGNANT

none of the salons in our area allow pregnant women to tan - i thought it was regulation in Ontario - lady bug or any other Canadians, do you allow pregnant tanners?

We have had a few & we have them sign a waiver

Re: PREGNANT

The majority here seems to think it would be OK........My opinion is WHY CHANCE IT AT ALL? I would personally not tan if I were pregnant. That is life, why would you take any risk whatsoever but then again I know women who smoked through there entire pregnancy.

If a pregnant woman really didn't want to take "any risk whatsoever", they would be best to stay in their bed 24/7. Yet doing that, is a risk in itself. Women who are pregnant drive cars, go to work, fly in planes, walk up and down stairs and engage in many other activities that are common in everyday life. I'm not sure but, I think women have been having babies for at least a 100 years now. Might be longer though.

Re: PREGNANT

As a salon onwer in Ontario, yes we let them tan when they are pregnant, we advise them to see their Doc before hand but to treat it like they would outdoors, will they still go outside in summer if they're pregnant...yes. We have had women tan with us upto and including the day they deliver. As has been stated, it is a heat issue and of course a comfort issue as they get bigger, not real easy getting in and out of tanning bed with beachball in your belly...lol
