A:Even though the pollution may be bad, it really is not as much a risk to the unborn child as you might think. There have been millions of healthy babies born in major cities without any apparent increased risk from air pollution. Still, precautions may be advisable in certain conditions and here are some ways that you can cut down your intake of unhealthy air. Avoid smoke filled rooms Keep the air conditioning on in your car when in congested traffic. Care should also be exercised when using household products.
