For many people, movies are always strongly attractive and going to the cinema to see the latest movies (blockbusters) seems to become a regular entertainment habit. But during the pregnancy, should pregnant mothers go to the cinema? Does it affect fetus? That is the most common question that many women wonder during pregnancy.
Fetuses are very sensitive to external activities affecting the mother’s body, so mothers should be careful with the factors that negatively influence the development of the baby when going to the cinema.
Being too crowded:
Of course, if pregnant mothers go to see the blockbusters, it is sure that there will be a large number of spectators who also like those movies. When in the overcrowded places, pregnant mothers will have a high risk of respiratory infection. Moreover, in the process of moving to the theaters, pregnant mothers are likely to suffer from some collisions which can affect fetuses.
Violent action films or horror films often have big sound to impress viewers. The various details of a film also cause certain psychological effects. Watching a 2-3-hour theater movie will make pregnant women stressful, thereby leading to some negative impacts on the fetuses. When being exposed to loud sounds with constant intensity, the majority of babies will have strong motor responses. If this situation is prolonged, it will make them little tired.
Watching a movie in a dark room with only one main light source from the screen will cause a pregnant woman’s eyesight to be affected. If regularly, there will increasingly be a decrease in the pregnant woman’s eyesight, which makes their health no longer be guaranteed.
Foods at the cinema:
Most of the food at the cinema is fast food and soft drinks – they are what women should avoid during pregnancy because they do not have a good effect on the development of the fetuses.
Although there are many negative factors in the cinema, pregnant mothers should not worry. Everything will be all right because seeing movies is also a special time of relaxation for the mother. Try applying the following tips to stop worrying and to fully enjoy this time:
