Pregnancy Pedicures: Are They Safe?

are pregnancy pedicures safeDFW 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:

  • Chemicals – Check on the chemicals used in the products for the services you are having performed. If they contain toluene, formaldehyde, acetone, or other questionable materials, skip them. A good idea is to simply ask for a chemical-free manicure.
  • Ventilation – Make sure that any nail salon you visit while pregnant has a robust ventilation system so you do not inhale harmful chemicals being used on other patrons.
  • Food and drink – Obviously, you need to pass on any alcoholic beverages if you go to a salon that offers such libations, but any type of drink or food served in a salon can put you at risk for exposure to chemicals.

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.

There is an option for a safe, enjoyable pedicure experience while pregnant – ourMediCureNow services! The professionals in our office pamper your feet, but without the risks that come from visiting a regular nail salon. Plus, we guarantee you will love hearing your friends exclaim “Wow! Your feet look super cute!”

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
