Avoid These Activities During PregnancyJune 7, 2018
Pregnancy is the most precious moments and eagerly awaited by married couples. To keep pregnancy healthy and babies in the womb grow well, pregnant women should avoid some activities that harm the fetus. Here are some lists of activities to avoid when pregnant:
1. Too hard to exercise
You still need to exercise while pregnant to maintain balance or pressure on the abdomen or lower back naturally. But if you exercise too hard can threaten the health of the fetus in the womb. Avoid extreme sports such as strength training or high-intensity cycling.
2. Cleaning the house with a chemical cleaner
Pregnant women are not advised to make direct contact with household cleaning products containing chemicals, such as floor cleaners and bathrooms. Exposure to chemicals has been associated with impaired development of the fetus in utero. Choose another alternative to clean the house without having to contain chemicals that harm the pregnancy, such as vinegar and water or baking soda.
3. Using lotions containing chemicals
Some studies show that the use of lotions and other beauty products can affect hormone levels. Experts advise choosing a lotion containing natural ingredients such as olive oil, green tea or grape seed rather than containing petroleum minerals.
4. Hair coloring
Pregnant women are not allowed at all to dye her hair, but you have to be picky about what product you use. Natural dyes such as henna and vegetable dyes are safer for pregnant women than hair chemicals. Also, focus on hair coloring on the length only and avoid putting paint on the scalp. Also, make sure you are in a well-ventilated area when using hair dye.
5. Drinking alcohol
Consumption of alcohol during pregnancy can certainly harm pregnancy regardless of the amount and amount. Until now even the experts really do not know the limits of alcohol that is still safe for consumption during pregnancy.
