It will not harm the fetus, but may cause excessive pigmentation. Remember that the safety of sunbeds in terms of skin cancer is still an issue.

I was wondering that myself. But I was thinking. If you sunbed just 15 mins at a time. Like 3 times a week just not to get too hot it should surely be ok.
