Hi Dr

How safe is it to tan on a sunbed if you are pregnant?

The heat can affect the baby. Also the increased pigmentation in pregnancy may make you go brown in places you don't want.

Best wishes

Not a good idea at all, pregnant or not but definitely never while pregnant.,

Hi, not the doctor but will put my 5 cents in anyhow. Being an avid tanner i would still not go in while pregnant. Just makes me think it could not be safe. I would rather go for a spray on instead. I keep imagining the baby getting way too hot....thought makes me shudder...sorry.
