Is it safe to work on a computer or use a copier while I’m pregnant?
Q: I recently found out I was pregnant and I’m wondering how safe it is to work at a computer all day? What about using the copier? Are there any potential risks in using these electronic devices?
A: Working on a computer is perfectly safe while pregnant. A research study evaluated pregnant telephone operators who sat in front of a computer screen all day long. Their babies were perfectly normal. Copiers are also safe to use while pregnant.
