Are Cell Phones And Laptops Safe To Use During Pregnancy
Most pregnant women nowadays prefer to work through their pregnancies and save up their maternity leaves for when the baby arrives. While most jobs and the lifestyles demand heavy usage of laptops and cellphones, few of us stop to think if its safe to use these devices around the pregnant belly.
Multiple studies have been done in this space and there are many contradicting results. We at Morph Maternity did our bit of research and this is what we found.
One study said that a connection has been made between the use of cell phones during pregnancy and hyperactivity in children. And this study further went to say that exposure to radio frequency caused Hyperactivity & Impaired memory in mice.
The same study mentioned that the power supply in Laptops is responsible for generating EMF (electro magnetic fields) much higher than the recommendations set forth by governing bodies that can cause health complications.
And there was another completely different study that said that no link was found between using these devices and child behaviour.
All these studies can be overwhelming, scary and confusing. We believe that all you pregnant mamas should stay safe and not take any risks. So you can follow these simple steps to reduce the level of exposure to radiation
- Using your mobile as little as possible.
- Keeping calls short.
- Making sure you’re in a spot where you can get a strong signal.
- Using a hands-free to reduce radiation near your head or body.
- Don’t charging the laptop while in use.
- Keep as much space between the laptop and body as possible.
We at Morph Maternity went a step further and did a bit of research and found this special fabric that is soft, yet has metal woven into it. This supercool fabric does not allow radiation to pass through it. We made a belt with it so you can wear it either over your dress or underneath it and stay safe from radiation.
