A new report has warned pregnant women they could be exposing themselves to unnecessary chemicals during pregnancy. The report has warned pregnant women against painting the nursery or using non stick frying pans as it could put their babies at risk of chemical exposure. Buying new fabrics, furniture and cars could also be dangerous whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. Personally I think the advice a little over the top. I was sanding walls and painting rooms throughout both my pregnancies right up until the day I went into labour and both my children are fine.
