Is BPA Safe During Pregnancy?

A woman’s body is the home of a yet-to-be-born human these coming months! Protecting this home is a privilege and a responsibility. Create a safe space by eliminating toxic chemicals like BPA from your beauty routine. BPA is a harmful chemical that mimics hormones. Maintain emotional balance and a healthy womb by avoiding BPA during pregnancy.

BPA & Pregnancy: Is It Safe?

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical used to make plastic products, such as infant feeding bottles, children’s toys, and food packaging. 

Nurture a sustainable future by reducing your plastic use. Your hormones and growing child will thank you. 

Here are some of the effects BPA has on pregnant women [1]: 

  • Miscarriages 

  • Premature deliveries

  • Effects on children’s development such as: 

    • Birth weight

    • Obesity 

    • Male genital abnormalities

    • Asthma

    • Immune function 

    • Thyroid function

    • Neurodevelopment (increased anxiety and depression) 

Become a BPA-Free Superhero

Pregnancy is a very vulnerable time for women. The exposure and intake of BPA on children and pregnant women is around two times greater than that of a regular adult [2]. 

But do not worry! You’re about to be a mom, which is code for “superhero.” Bring balance to your hormones, protect your child, and save the environment. 

I See You, BPA!

BPA likes to hide in our household products. Uncover these toxic chemicals and remove them from your house. Replace them with more sustainable items that you can feel good about using. 

Exposure to BPA during pregnancy may have a direct effect on the health of the developing child. 

Say bye-bye to:

  • Fried & pickled food [3]

  • Receipts [4] 

  • Plastic storage containers

  • Plastic baby bottles and toys 

  • Certain paints
