doctor, introduce me Titin I want to ask this, I’m 15 weeks pregnant, tomorrow there will be a lunar eclipse, someone said that pregnant women can’t see the eclipse, the child will have a big birthmark later, if it’s from a medical doctor does it have any effect? Because I really want to see it. Thank you doctor.

Hi Titin,

There are many beliefs that develop in society regarding pregnant women, one of which is the prohibition of seeing a lunar eclipse. In this case, actually the belief that pregnant women who see a lunar eclipse can cause children to have large birthmarks is just a myth that has not been scientifically proven.

In fact, the cause of birthmarks in babies is still unknown, but generally birthmarks appear due to additional pigment in the skin or the presence of blood vessels that collect or do not grow normally:

Birthmarks due to additional pigment: large mole, coffee stain/brown marks, mongolian spots/blue-gray markings such as bruising Birthmarks due to abnormal blood vessels: strawberry marks (red patches), salmon patches (thin pink patches) , wine stains (pink spots that turn purplish) Of these birthmarks, some are harmless and will fade over time, and some require medical attention. Some birthmarks that need medical attention are strawberry marks that interfere with vision and breathing, grape stains near the eyes and cheeks, coffee stains of more than 6 spots, birthmarks on the lower spine, or if the birthmark affects the appearance and confidence of the child. Handling will be adjusted to the child's condition with drugs, lasers, and surgery.
