  • as with all tanning, it is not recommended because of UV exposure but it poses no risk to your baby if that's what you are asking. just make sure it's not one of those flat beds as you might not fit in it ;o)

  • I have seen pregnant women go to the tanning bed but, if you think about it it does not seem all that safe.

  • I tanned just sitting outside in the sunshine but wouldn't do it while pregnant. It didn't sound like a great idea to me.
