While a steam room, hot tub, or sauna would be a welcome relief to an aching pregnant body, they are on the “don’t list” during pregnancy. Keeping your body temperature in a healthy range is essential for your baby’s proper development (that is one reason you are also cautioned to keep your heart rate below 140 BPM when doing cardiovascular exercise), If you become overheated, your baby’s development is at risk. Along the same lines, avoid long, hot baths, too much sun and heat, and long, hard workouts.
