Anyone who has ever gone through a pregnancy will tell you that it comes with its own worries and fears, so it does not help when the professionals and experts give them even more to worry about. A new report has given a new list of things that pregnant women should avoid and Jenny McCarthy has slammed the release of the information.
In her column for the Independent, McCarthy said, "There is something unfair about the situation in which pregnant women find themselves. They have, essentially, been given a licence to worry about a wide range of exposures, without any clear conclusions as to whether such worries are worthwhile. I foresee a nation of distraught Mumzillas, fretting that they are doing something to damage their baby, while simultaneously being pilloried for over-cautiousness."
She added, "Yet if such common chemicals are indeed potentially harmful to unborn babies, it is urgent that the regulatory authorities make a considered appraisal of all available evidence, and take action if necessary. The RCOG report has raised many questions. It is time for more answers."
With so many pregnant women in the World, it is understandable to warn them of the potential dangers of using such products and good but, as Jenny McCarthy states, pregnant women live enough fear as it is and surely the extra stress and worry is equally as bad for the unborn child.
