Q.

Pregnancy and vuvuzelas

My wife is now 21 weeks pregnant and we are planning to attend a soccer match during SWC. Is the noise of the vuvuzelas dangerous for the fetus?

Dear Deon

The sound of the vuvuzelas can be harmful for you and your wife but your baby should be fine. Remember to use hearing protection, that you can get at any Audiology practice or at certain pharmacies. Noise damaged works on the level of the noise as well as on the duration of exposure.

Please let me know if you need any further information
