Summer can be hot and humid. This is even worse if you are pregnant. Although summer feels miserable when pregnant, the warm weather does have its benefits. Delivering the baby in a warm month means both mother and child will be able to get fresh air, which can be very important. Here are some tips for summer pregnancy.
While the thought of going outside may seem like the worst idea ever, there are ways to stay cool and healthy while outdoors. Go outside in the morning or evening when the sun is lower and therefore the temperature is lower. This is a way to avoid humidity as well. Wear light-colored clothing as well as very few layers. Also apply the appropriate amount of sunscreen through out the day. Due to the pregnancy, it is a good idea to use a higher SPF than you would use during a normal summer.
