Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting your query and first of all congratulations to the mother to be.

Yes, you can use them.

You need to take due care in using them.

There is no proper scientific data that they are unsafe and at the same time there is no proper scientific data that they are safe.

In general if you are comfortable in using it you can use them. They might produce some local irritation or reaction as the skin during pregnancy becomes more sensitive. Take care for that.

Other wise there not much to worry about.

Wishing you all the best for time to come and good health.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh
