Hello. My wife is pregnant and we sleep in aircon every night. Is this bad?

Airconditions are fine during pregnancy, unless the mother-to-be has allergies. It is important to maintain your aircon unit properly and replace the filters according to the manufacturer's suggestions.

Another concern of pregnant mums with regards to aircon is that it exacerbate the dry skin they may experience during their pregnancy. To help, they should consider using a good moisturiser and humidifier in the room.
