Is it harmful to the baby to get a piercing in my ear while im pregnant???

I'm a huge fan of piercings, and typically a quick healer, so i was wondering if it would be any risk to me or the baby if i got a new piercing in my ear/ears.

  • you can get your ears pierced, as long as it is by a professional and you don't do it yourself. You have to be careful to keep it clean to decrease your chances of infection.

  • when i was prego i went to get my ears done and they refused to do them because i was preg. i guess it can cause early labor or miscarrage. not sure how it does but thats what they had told me at the shop.. good luck

  • harmful only via infection or if they aim too low and hit the baby...(yes that's a joke)
