Description

Scuba diving is a dangerous activity to do while pregnant. Scuba divers must decompress as they return to the surface and your developing babies may have difficulty decompressing. Also, as your surface, air bubbles can form in your bloodstream posing a very dangerous side effect to you and your baby. Studies have shown higher incidence of birth defects and preterm birth. Scuba diving is not recommended during any part of your pregnancy. Updated: 11.17.17
