12 Steps to Reducing Fetal Exposures

Although obstetricians warn pregnant women not to drink alcohol and not to smoke during pregnancy, we are learning that there are other chemicals and products that women should be careful about during those critical nine months. The Environmental Working Group found more than 200 chemicals in the cord blood of babies tested right after birth. The Journal of the American Medical Association reports significantly more malformations in the fetuses of mothers who were occupationally exposed to solvents. Turpentine, liquid paint removers, and other solvents should all be avoided during pregnancy. Clean and well-ventilated air is also very important for good health. Air pollutants should be kept at a minimum, both inside and outside the home and work- place. This is especially important during pregnancy.
