Is it safe to paint during pregnancy?

Fumes from oil-based paints, turpentine, and paint thinner should be avoided during pregnancy.  However, fumes from latex paints no longer pose the risk to developing babies, as they used to, but it is always wise to paint in a well-ventilated area.

Pregnant women should also always avoid using a ladder, to reduce the risk falling.
