  • I lived in an apt with a major mold issue while pregnant. Had a great pregnancy and a beautiful healthy daughter. What I personally advise is DO NOT clean it yourself and don't go in the room until a couple hours after a cleaning has been done. When you clean mold all the tiny spores fly through the air looking for a wet place to land (your mouth or nose) but you shouldn't be around chemical fumes anyway. Just try your best to stay away from it.
