Took shower after it had been sprayed down with bleach. Smelled strong. 30 weeks pregnant. Harmful to baby?
Not harmful: The amount of chlorine your would have breathed in, then get through your lungs, your system and to baby would be so tiny that it poses no risk to the baby. Quite honestly, I'm glad they sprayed it down - much more likely you would catch a germ had it not been well cleaned that could cause harm to your baby than anything the dilute bleach solution/fumes would do to you! ...Read more

I am 11 weeks pregnant. I've seen my baby's heartbeat. I have to be sprayed with oleoresin capsicum for my job tomorrow. Will this affect my baby?
Get a note: I am not aware of pepper spray causing any problems for a pregnant woman. That being said this just seems like a bad idea and not a nice thing to do to a pregnant woman and her first trimester. Get a note from your doctor excusing you from this until after the pregnancy is complete. I would imagine your employer would agree. ...Read more
19 weeks pregnant. I saw a bug on the couch, maybe first bed bug. Freaked out and sprayed the couch with rubbing alcohol. Strong smell, is it safe?
Chemicals/pregnant: Air out the room or go into another room, a single episode for a short period should not be an issue. For the future get some N-99 particle masks at home depot and ventilate to room (open window, fan) or have someone else do this if occurs regularly (hopefully it will not happen again-). Don't worry. ...Read more
Sprayed showerhead in vagina to clean off soap, scared of embolism. How likely is it to happen and when would it happen? Also 27 weeks pregnant
Shower spray/vagina: This is unlikely to cause an embolism. Embolic disease in pregnancy is more frequent at the time of delivery, and is very rare. Shower irrigation of the vaginal area is common in Europe, and a "bidet" is an appliance seen in most European bathrooms, which essentially does the same as your showerhead, and is very safe. ...Read more

Start with family: Developing a network for support is similar to developing a network of friends, coworkers. However, a woman who is pregnant is vulnerable in some ways so needs to be more cautious whom she friends irl or using social media. I suggest she not share real names, locations, the due date, plans for delivery, gender of the baby, ultrasound photos, etc. On websites or with people she does not know well. ...Read more

Why is it prohibited to use ducray anacaps for a pregnant women? And what are the effects for a pregnant women if she uses it?

So, that means nobody really knows what side effects there are. If an anacaps user hears of some interaction or thinks she is getting a side effect, she can visit her primary care doctor. ...Read more
