Re: PREGNANT

Tanning hold the possiblity of heating a person up too much. I don't think she should tan but that's JMO.
I've had prego women come in to tan before but they were smart enough to limit themselves to a shorter tanning time (like 10 minutes) so they wouldn't get too hot. And of course....they didn't use any tingle lotion.

Re: PREGNANT

I've always learned that there are two risks with tanning & pregnancy:

- the heat: so don't tan too hot (too many bulbs) and not too far in the pregnancy

- something we call a 'pregnancy mask': discoloration of the facial skin. Some pregnant women get this and it takes a long time before it disappears. But if it hasn't occured the first time you tanned while pregnant, the chance is big it won't happen at all. But I always warn pregnant women of this risk

Re: PREGNANT

mother's mask is not caused by tanning, I know several women who have mothers mask and it rarely ever goes away and none of them got it from tanning, it is just something that happens occasionally

Re: PREGNANT

Not by tanning alone, but mostly by UV-light. That's why they advise pregnant women to minimize the amount of UV-light during the pregnancy and the months after the baby is born.

I can only find Dutch articles about this, but as soon as I find an enlish link, I'll post it.

Got it:

Maybe I should have put it differently: if a pregnant woman is susceptible to mother's mask or melasma, exposure to UV-light is a risk and then can cause the mother's mask to appear.

Re: PREGNANT

It has been my experience that if you are in court in front of a judge, he will listen to the guy with the most letters behind his name--no matter how stupid he is.

When I was in the securities business, we had a rule of thumb when recommending a stock to someone, has thejudge heard of it?

Same thing here, IMO. Right or wrong doesn't mean much. Pass the buck to the doctor. Whatever he (or she) says, don't try to argue. As aggravating as it is, if it goes to court, the MD behind their name will mean more to the judge than the Jr behind mine.

Re: PREGNANT

But what if pregnant women don't go ask the doctor, but ask you? Then you should be able to give them correct information, or do you always send them to go see the doctor first?

As her body CORE TEMP rises, so goes the fetus brain temp and it can't handle much of a rise to stay healthy.
It's the BODY CORE TEMP rising that will cause a problem ^^^^^^^^
