|Is it safe to get your nails done while pregnant?|
Recently a pregnant woman posted this question on our midwives' yahoo mail group:
Is it really all that bad to get a perm or color my hair while pregnant? And, how about getting a mani/pedicure? I was hoping that someone would know if the chemicals used are really all that harmful to the baby.
Since I posted a lengthy answer, I thought I'd share it here as well.
