There is currently no specific time limit for phone usage during pregnancy recommended by health organizations. However, some people might still be concerned about potential risks from exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) emitted by cell phones.

Research on the effects of RF-EMF exposure during pregnancy is still limited, and findings have been largely inconsistent. Some studies have suggested a possible association between RF-EMF exposure and adverse effects on fetal development, while others have found no significant risks.

To minimize any potential risks, you may consider taking some precautions:

  1. Keep a distance: Hold the phone away from your body while using it, or use speakerphone or a hands-free device.
  2. Text instead of calling: Text messaging usually requires shorter periods of exposure to RF-EMF than voice calls.
  3. Limit your phone usage in low-signal areas: Phones emit higher levels of RF-EMF when trying to connect in areas with poor reception.
  4. Turn off your phone when not in use or use airplane mode: This can help reduce RF-EMF exposure.
