Is it safe to paint while pregnant

If you're pregnant you should put off any painting projects until after your baby is born. I know that some companies do make "safer" paints with less fumes but I don't think it's really worth the risk. If you absolutely must paint you should wear a full face respirator. I wouldn't trust the regular small masks, personally. It's best to have someone do the painting for you and make sure the area is very well ventilated while doing so.

    Totally agree, it's just not worth the risk. Wait until the baby is born or have someone else do the painting for you!
