MummyWraps made to protect unborn babies from electrosmog


When Jenna, our editor over at Babygadget, was pregnant not long ago, I'd often see her place something cushiony between her belly and her laptop when she was working. Most moms-to-be aren't comforted by skeptics who say there's no proof that electrical devices can cause harm to unborn babies, and therefore no reason to worry about it. I can't blame the cautious moms. I'm not even pregnant, and I don't generally rest my laptop directly on top of my lap.

MummyWraps were developed to protect unborn babies from "electrosmog," otherwise known as Electro-Magnetic Radiation (EMR), which comes from x-rays, radar, microwaves, TV and radio stations, cellphones, and other wireless devices. MummyWraps are made of "Swiss-Shield" fabric, which supposedly screens out EMR. The stretchy, copper-based, cotton wrap can be worn as an under-garment or as an outer-garment from conception through birth. They're priced at $69.95 on the MummyWraps website (apropos of nothing, does anybody else have the reaction that the model on their website looks awfully young?).
