Does camera radiation affect pregnancy?

Posted on Fri, 4 Dec 2015
Question: Hi,

I am in my 31st week of pregnancy & had baby shower on last Sunday where we took photos using a professional photographer. Elders say taking photos during pregnancy will affect the baby & advised you should not have done that. Is that really true?

Thanks,
