There are many rules and restrictions for women during pregnancies including their diet, medications, physical activities, travel, and cleaning products. Studies have shown that pregnant women have measurable levels of several toxins in their bodies that pose real threats to the development of the fetus. The majority of cleaning products that contain toxic substances is no exception to this risk.
Can I Use Cleaning Chemicals During Pregnancy?
The answer is NO.
Women need to be careful around chemicals and fumes. Having contact with chemicals could possibly harm her or her baby or even both. Even if it is such a small amount that you don't need to worry, it's still highly recommended to avoid some toxic products while you are pregnant. These highly toxic products include pesticides in the garden, flame retardants on furniture, lead, mercury, and some cleaning products with harmful ingredients. If you are exposed to these large quantities of chemicals for a long time, it is possible that your child will be at an increased risk of congenital disorders or future health problems
Avoid These Toxic Chemicals in Your Household Products
Cleaning supplies protect your home from viruses, bacteria, and mold. Now, it's time to protect you and your house from toxic cleaning supplies. Make sure you are staying clean with safe cleaning products.

Precautions to Keep Your Baby Safe from Harm
If you stopped to think about the many chemicals you come into contact with each day, from cleaning supplies to pesticides, you might be concerned about their effect on your health and the health of your unborn baby.
Chemical exposure can occur in a variety of ways. You can breathe it in, ingest it in foods or beverages, or in some cases, absorb it through your skin. Pregnant women that are potentially exposed to a large amount of chemicals for a prolonged period of time are putting their child at risk.
The good news?
Many of the chemicals you encounter on a regular basis won’t pose a risk to your growing baby. It is best to avoid exposure to these chemicals between weeks 0 to 13 of pregnancy. The risk to your unborn child at this stage is higher. Fortunately, there are many ways you can reduce your hazard.
Here are some steps that you can take while cleaning during pregnancy to keep you and your baby safe from harm.
Step 1: Make sure that you have good ventilation where you are cleaning.
Step 2: Wear protective gloves and clothing to protect your skin.
Step 3: Always read the warning and instruction labels.
Step 4: Never mix different chemicals such as ammonia and bleach; doing this can be very dangerous not only for you and your baby, but for anyone who can inhale this.
Step 5: Avoid cleaning the oven since it is such a tight space and the ventilation is not good.
Step 6: Store all chemicals safely. Keep out of the reach of children with safety caps screwed on correctly.
Most likely, your home is free of environmental hazards that could harm your baby. But by taking some simple precautions to minimize your exposure to potential hazards, you can protect your baby from possible risks.
