Q: Hello. My wife is pregnant and we sleep in air-con every night. Is this bad?

A: Air-conditioning is fine during pregnancy, unless the mother-to-be has allergies. It is important to maintain your air-con unit properly. Replacing the filters according to the manufacturer's suggestions.

Pregnant mums also have other concerns with regards to air-con. One of which is that they are worried it will exacerbate the dry skin. They should consider using a good moisturiser and humidifier in the room as solutions.
