Are Mobile Phones And Laptops Safe To Use During Pregnancy
Mar 05, 2022
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 lifestyles demand heavy usage of laptops and mobile phones, few of us stop to think if it's safe to use these devices around the pregnant belly.
Multiple studies have been done in this space and many contradicting results exist. 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 mobile phones during pregnancy and hyperactivity in children. And this study further went on to say that exposure to radiofrequency caused Hyperactivity & Impaired memory in mice.
The same study mentioned that the power supply in Laptops is responsible for generating EMF (electromagnetic fields) much higher than the recommendations set forth by governing bodies which can cause health complications.
And there was another completely different study that said that no link was found between using these devices and child behavior.
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
- Use your mobile phone as little as possible.
- Keep calls short.
- Make sure you are in an area with a strong signal.
- Use hands-free devices to reduce radiation exposure near your head and body.
- Avoid charging your laptop while using it.
- Keep as much distance as possible between your laptop and your body.
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 super cool fabric does not allow radiation to pass through it. We made a belt with it so you can wear it over your dress and stay safe from radiation.
