Can anyone tell me why pregnant women can't do jacuzzi's, saunas and steam rooms? Is it because we're likely to overheat or will it induce labour or hurt the baby?
Most swimming pools with these facilities say pregnant ladies can't use them but none say why!

Ta muchly.

Over heating is the main reason I believe. Dehydration can cause a few problems that can hurt your baby and overheating can induce premature labour. (So I have been told)
