Sun safety tips for pregnant women

If you're planning to spend a lot of time outdoors during your pregnancy, protect yourself from the sun by taking the following steps:

  • Try to stay inside during peak sun hours, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., if you can.
  • Stay in a shaded area whenever possible, especially when the sun is at its hottest. 
  • Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before you go out. Use about 1 ounce (a shot glass-worth), and thoroughly spread it over all exposed skin. Reapply every two hours.
  • Use lip balm with an SPF of 30 or higher on your lips. They can get sunburned too!
  • Cover as much skin as possible, and choose light clothing in a breathable fabric, preferably in a tight weave. Hold it up to the sun; the less light that passes through, the better.
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, ideally ones that block 99 percent of both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Stay cool. In addition to seeking shade and wearing protective clothing, stay hydrated while you're out in the sun. Pregnant women are more susceptible to heat stroke, so if you're feeling light-headed or dizzy, drink some water and seek out A/C ASAP so you can cool down.

Remember, you don't have to stay inside just because you’re pregnant. By all means, get out there and have fun! Just be sure to make sun protection a priority.
