Can You Sew While Pregnant?
I want to ask before I became pregnant, I like sewing bju, I sew it using an electric sewing machine, now I’m pregnant, can I not sew?
Thank you for the question.
Sewing is actually not prohibited for pregnant women. In fact, if you really like to sew, then the relaxed and happy feelings that arise when your hobby is fulfilled can make the fetus in your womb too healthy development.
However, in sewing during pregnancy, there are several things to note:
Position your body when sewing
Excessive bending of the body, including when sitting and bending the legs, can make blood flow not smooth, and can trigger swelling and even impaired fetal development. Try to change your sitting position, and stand occasionally so that the blood flow in your body stays smooth. Not only that, also wear loose and comfortable clothes when sewing, and rest when your body starts to feel uncomfortable. The type of sewing machine used
There are several types of machines that can be used when sewing. If you are using an electric sewing machine, then you must also pay attention to the machine's electrical voltage. Because, if the voltage is too large, especially when in direct contact with the fetus, it is very risky to inhibit the development of the fetus in your womb. Not only that, the flow of electricity from this sewing machine can also endanger yourself if you experience a shorting. Sewing machine shocks used
Some types of sewing machines can also have shocks during use. This shock, if severe enough, can trigger uterine contractions in sensitive people. Other sharp objects in the sewing machine
If you are not careful, needles and other sharp objects on the sewing machine can also hurt you. Much safer, if before sewing, you first check the condition of your pregnancy to the doctor or obstetrician. Because, even though it is not dangerous at a glance, even if it is done excessively, sewing can be very draining of your energy, so the impact on your fetus is not good. By going directly to the doctor, the doctor can certainly evaluate objectively whether or not it is safe for you to keep doing the sewing activity.
Hope this helps ...
