Anyone who has gone through a pregnancy will know it can be quite stressful at times. Not only are you dealing with hormonal changes, cravings and morning sickness, you are also suddenly not just concerned about your own health, but also that of the little person growing inside you.
All expecting mothers should be aware of the importance of ensuring a healthy lifestyle while pregnant. Eating correctly, exercising regularly and avoiding toxins such as alcohol and other certain chemicals are all important in assuring your baby gets the best possible start in life.
One thing many people know little about however is the affect that everyday radiation can have on children and developing fetuses.
First, let me break down for you what radiation actually is. Put simply, radiation is energy traveling through space and materials.
Radiation exists naturally, however we are exposed too much higher levels from man-made sources.
Radiation can be classified into two categories:
Non-ionizing radiation Non-ionizing radiation includes radio waves, microwaves, infrared, and ultraviolet. It surrounds us in everyday life from various sources including cell phones, tablets, computers, and wifi.
Ionizing radiation High-energy radiation includes x-rays and gamma rays. This type of radiation is commonly known to be very dangerous even in small doses, but, luckily, is less prevalent in everyday life.
Radiation has for a long time been cited as a health risk to young children and growing fetuses, however evidence still remains mixed. As the dangers caused by radiation can take years to show their effect in young children, the risks during pregnancy from radiation are difficult to pinpoint. Until we know more however, many health experts and governments recommend applying a precautionary principle towards these risks.
That is where Belly Armor by Radiasheild comes in.
Belly Armor provides apparel and accessories that shield everyday radiation (so non-ionizing radiation). They offer resources for families looking to protect themselves against the harmful effects of everyday radiation, providing knowledge about the health risks from wireless technologies and designing products to help reduce exposure.
The company focuses primarily on pregnancy clothing, as the effects of radiation are of greatest concern for young children and fetuses when DNA replication and cell growth is at its highest rate.
Available as either a blanket, which you can drape over your bump, or a t-shirt, Belly Armor is designed to create a lightweight textile barrier between your baby and items that omit non-ionizing radiation such as cell phones and computers.

The impact technology now has on our lives is undeniable and while it does come with many benefits, it is important to be aware of the potential risks that it may have for both you and your family.
