I read many articles about using the laptop during pregnancy, it said that it is harmfull-specially if you put it on your belly. It might affect the baby because of it's radiation.
Do anyone of you knows for sure the accuracy of this topis??
Kindly share it with us.

Using my laptop throughout all three pregnancies.....both kids are fine, and baby is doing well. I think this ranks right up there with cell phone usage can lead to brain cancer / tumors.

This is what I read on babyworld.co.uk:



Question: Are laptops safe to use in pregnancy?




Answer: According to current scientific knowledge, using a laptop computer on your lap will not harm your baby - but do read on! For over two decades, people have worried about the possible adverse effects of visual display units (monitors or VDUs) on pregnancy. A number of research projects involving animals suggested that the emissions (x-rays, ultraviolet rays, microwaves, radio waves and so on) from these units might contribute to miscarriage. Experts also questioned whether prolonged, daily use might cause other problems in pregnancy, such as reduced foetal growth and preterm labour. The results of all relevant studies were recently analysed by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, who concluded that none of these fears (including the question of miscarriage) are borne out by research evidence. It is also worth noting that early worries about VDUs concerned old-style units powered by cathode ray tubes (as in conventional TV sets). Technology has now moved on, and the screens on most modern laptops use liquid crystal display technology rather than cathode ray tubes. Emissions from these displays are much lower than from older VDUs. All VDUs manufactured or on sale in the UK now conform to various national and international standards controlling emission levels.
