  • you can use it on your back or your stomach, but if you decide to use it on your stomach, make sure its on low. but in general yes it is safe. i have used mine throught my whole pregnancy, and baby is doing great to this day. also if your not so sure and if you are really concerned, please contact your doctor for futher advice.

  • I've got one on my back as we speak. Doc said it's fine on the back, and didn't give me any restrictions. Just don't fall asleep with it on and listen to your body.
