I’m guessing you’re here because you googled ‘Is resin safe to use during pregnancy?’
First, CONGRATULATIONS! You must be excited about what’s to come. And I’m impressed you’re trying to fit in epoxy projects time too.
Second, I’m not a human health care professional. Use what you read here to help you make an informed decision. Talk with your health provider about your concerns. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also has information about resins and reproductive health.
Third, you should take resin safety seriously, even if you’re not pregnant. Using resin is a fun way to spend a creative afternoon. But it does need certain safety preparations.
What’s the best way to know if resin is safe to use during pregnancy?
Carefully review the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for the resin supplies you want to use.
An SDS will include important details like:
Necessary safety gear
Who to call in case of emergency
Plus, there are lots more details that you can share with your healthcare person. (If you’re using Resin Obsession products, we’ve got them for you here: SDS)
⚠️ CRITICAL: Just because a resin says it is natural, eco-friendly, or non-toxic doesn’t mean it is safe for use, during pregnancy or otherwise, without proper precautions. It’s vital you learn everything about the product and follow the recommended safety procedures.
By the way…
I would never buy resin where I couldn’t get an SDS for a product. Pregnant or not. If a company can’t give you an SDS, then how do they know it’s safe to use?
⭐️ BONUS: Get all the epoxy resin safety precautions you need to take when creating with resin (whether or not there’s a baby on board).
