DFW Child compiles various resources to help new and expecting mothers in the Dallas-Fort Worth community, including helping you to know the best places to meet other moms, where to find the best childbirth classes, and the best stores for splurging on furniture and clothes for your baby. This is a valuable service because it can be hard to keep track of everything during (and after!) a pregnancy. Some mothers-to-be have difficulty tracking which practices are healthy during these nine months, so let’s examine one issue for you: are pedicures safe during pregnancy?
First, pedicures can actually be a good way to relax, take a load off of your hard-working feet, and boost your confidence. We know that having your feet carefully attended to can make you feel better—mentally and physically. Freshly-painted nails and carefully-massaged feet look and feel great, especially during pregnancy. There are some things to keep in mind, though, including:
A major concern, and this extends to non-pregnant ladies as well, is walking out of a nail salon having contracted a fungal infection. Nail technicians are supposed to follow the sanitary procedures that salons are supposed to have established, but “supposed to” doesn’t always mean it gets done or is performed correctly. A salon can have the best possible procedures, but they are useless if not followed in the proper manner.
