• No. Body wraps usually involve heat. High temperatures can cause the body temperature to rise, which leads to a faster heart rate and reduce blood flow to the uterus. This poses undue stress on your baby and can even cause birth defects, especially during the early stage of pregnancy. Pregnant women also have a hard time cooling down and are more likely to faint. Even if the wrap doesn’t feel too warm for you, you’re still at risk of getting dehydrated, which can lead to increased uterine activity and contractions.

    Avoid saunas, hot tubs, and hot baths.
