I provided two full minutes of cpr and rescue breaths im nine to ten weeks pregnant and just saw the babys heartbeat yesterday. It may sound dumb but I just jumped into action I know im not too far along but could I of hurt anything? Baby should be nice and padded... But im unsure if its ok to do cpr during pregnancy.

Me too, well not all the time but unfortunately it does come up. I did the other day (twice) and didnt even think about it hurting the baby. I don't know how it could.

I wouldn't have done rescue breathing. Compressions is all they would recommend for 10 mn anyway. I'd be afraid of getting germs because your immune system is weaker

I work on the Cardiac floor. So unfortunately, I have to do it a lot more than I hoped. :/

Not really sure why it wouldn't be??

People confuse me with such odd questions.
