Description

Tanning beds pose the same dangers as the sun since they emit ultraviolet radiation, which does cause skin cancer. Lying in a tanning bed can raise your body temperature to a level that is hazardous to your baby particularly during the first trimester. Lying on your back for too long in a tanning bad can restrict blood flow to your heart as well as to your baby. Tanning beds are not recommended during pregnancy.
Check with your physician to discuss the risks of using a tanning bed during your pregnancy.
