Is resin safe to use during pregnancy?

Excited to create with resin?

Hold on a sec, mama! While resin art is fun, it’s crucial to prioritize your and your baby’s safety during pregnancy. Here’s a quick guide to keep you crafting confidently:

  1.  Read the Rules: Every resin brand is different, so follow their specific safety guidelines. Don’t assume one set of rules fits all!
  2. Ventilation: Ensure that you are working in a well-ventilated area. Good ventilation helps to disperse any fumes that may be released during the resin curing process. This is important for everyone using resin but particularly crucial during pregnancy.
  3. Use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as gloves and a special gases mask, to minimize direct contact with the resin and to reduce inhalation of any potential fumes.
  4. Choose Low-VOC Resins: Some resins are formulated to be low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as IBRAYAs resin. These resins may emit fewer fumes and could be a safer option, though it’s still essential to take precautions.
  5. Consult with a Healthcare Professional: If you have any doubts or concerns about the safety of using resin during pregnancy, it’s advisable to consult with your healthcare provider. They can provide personalized advice based on your health, the stage of your pregnancy, and any specific risks associated with the materials you are using.
  6. Limit Exposure: Minimize the time you spend directly handling and working with resin. This can help reduce potential exposure to any harmful substances.
  7. Cure it Right: Follow the recommended curing procedures for your resin to the letter. Proper curing minimizes fume release and ensures a safe finished product.

Remember: Your well-being and your baby’s come first. While resin art is rewarding, these safety tips will help you enjoy your hobby with peace of mind throughout your pregnancy.
