Water gymnastics for pregnant women is harmful for the baby’s immunity.
Experts from the Institute of Dermatology of St. John and the University of Manchester reported on the harmfulness of such a sports hobby.
They argue that playing sports during pregnancy is a must, but not all types of physical culture can have a positive effect on the health of the baby. Particularly dangerous is swimming in the pool. Scientists attribute this to the fact that the main harm comes from the evaporation of chlorine.
According to experts, chlorine can change the immune system long before the baby is born. However, already in an adult child may develop eczema and asthma.
In his speech, Dr. John McFadden said that with standard impairments in the child’s immune balance, his condition recovers within a year. If the body interacts with chemicals, the balance changes forever.
In addition, the doctor does not recommend the use of household chemicals throughout pregnancy.
