What to avoid:
Avoid fumes: avoid nail polish because of the fumes .Especially the fumes and questionability of nail-polish remover on the skin … if it has toluene in it that is bad as it is a carcinogen. Getting your nails clipped and buffed is no biggie, but if it is a place that does the” epoxy nails” I would avoid it because you don’t want to be breathing that. The only thing to make sure of is that the salon is well ventilated so you are not breathing in all the fumes….. Avoid pressure on a certain part of your foot which causes contractions.
Avoid getting an infection: The possible risk for anyone having a manicure or pedicure is that of infection from imperfectly sterilized equipment. An infection during pregnancy is additionally concerning, as your baby is also at risk for exposure to any infection that you acquire. With that in mind, keep these precautions in mind when choosing a salon: Clippers and other tools should be properly sterilized in an autoclave sterilizer; non-metal files, buffers, and sticks should not be reused; and pedicure baths should be sanitized, for example. You can also bring your own tools, if you prefer. Your technician should wear new gloves. Ask that your cuticles – which protect the nail bed from bacteria and fungus – not be cut or pushed back. And look to see that the salon and each nail technician has posted a license of certification.
A pedicure can work wonders in the last trimester, soothing sore feet, increasing circulation, and reducing swelling — not to mention making you feel a whole lot prettier. What to avoid: Do be sure the manicurist does not massage the area between your anklebone and heel .it could trigger contractions).
