Is resin safe to use during pregnancy?

Good question!  Using resin can fun way to spend a creative afternoon.  It does, however, require certain safety precautions.  Here are a few things to consider when deciding whether or not to use resin while you are pregnant:

  1. Carefully review the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for the resin(s) you are considering.  In addition to listing the chemicals contained in the resin that may cause harm, these sheets also list safety precautions recommended when using the products.  A very important note here, just because a resin says it is natural, eco-friendly, non-toxic, etc. does not mean it is safe for use (during pregnancy or otherwise) without proper precautions.  It is important that you learn everything you can about the product and follow recommended safety procedures.
  2. Talk with your healthcare provider about whether or not the resin product is safe for you to use.  Providing additional information, like the SDS mentioned above, will help that person understand any risks you may encounter when using the product.
  3. If you decide to use resin, take all recommended safety precautions.  Enough said.

If you are looking for additional information to help you make a decision, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has information about reproductive health and the workplace.

EVERYONE SHOULD REMEMBER THAT THOSE FUMES YOU BREATH IN GO DIRECTLY TO YOUR BLOODSTREAM AND THROUGH THE BRAIN AND BODY WITHIN SECONDS. RESIN ON THE SKIN TAKES LONGER BUT CAN STILL HAVE EFFECTS.
