UV & Pregnancy

I have recently started using sunbeds, and also found out that I am 6 weeks pregnant. I want to know if this could harm my baby.

UV exposure is not dangerous for your unborn, but it is for your skin. The skin becomes increasingly sensitive during pregnancy and there is a 75-90 per cent chance of stretch marks. Such scarring will only become aggravated with UV exposure, I suggest that you stop, and spend your money on a decent fake tan instead.
