: My husband has a pig operation. I would like to help with chores during my pregnancy while he is away. Are the very strong fumes of ammonia and gases dangerous to my unborn baby? What about heavy dust or manure? Does anyone know?
You should try to get ahold of a genetic counselor to answer this question. They generally have access to the most current information regarding exposures (via a program called Reprotox). Your obstetrician should be able to put you in contact with a genetic counselor. Off the top of my head, I would be concerned about ammonia exposure. Best of luck
