Is it safe for me to be around the microwave now that I’m pregnant?
As long as you don’t plan to perch yourself in the microwave, you can safely use it during pregnancy!
Another household device pregnant patients ask me about is the computer screen. They want to know if it’s safe to sit in front of their home computer terminal. Recent research addressed this issue once and for all. It studied telephone operators who spent eight hours daily working on a personal computer while pregnant. I am happy to report that their babies were just as handsome and smart as pregnant women who did not have a computer-based job.
