Most pregnant women are careful with what they eat, drink and what they apply on their skin. This is rightfully so as they are carrying a life inside them. It is common knowledge that what you eat and drink are what the baby inside would be nourished with. However not many people understand that whatever is applied on the skin is absorbed by the body as well. Therefore in pregnant women, whatever it is they apply on their skin would be in their bloodstream which of course would be fed to the baby.
