Many people like to put various flowers in the bedroom. They think that flowers not only produce fresh oxygen for the human body, but also provide beautiful scenery for humans. But not every type of flower is suitable for putting in the room, especially pregnant women. Unsuitable flowers can seriously affect normal feeding and the rest of expectant mothers and their babies. Therefore, pregnant women should put appropriate flowers in the bedroom to protect the physical health of themselves and their fetuses.
Generally speaking, flowers that are not suitable for pregnant women to put in the room include carnation, bloodgrass, hydrangea, evening primrose, Chinese rose, Chinese redbud, oleander, lily, and mimosa. On the contrary, suitable ones include clove, kaffir lily, scindapsus aureum, pachira aquatica, aloe, ivy, maguey and cactus.
The scent of some flowers can stimulate the nerves of pregnant women. Strong odor can stimulate the nerves of expectant mothers, causing headaches, nausea and sickness, and affect appetite. In addition, strong odor can even cause fetal imbalance and abortion. Therefore, in the first period of pregnancy, women should stay away from flowers that emit strong odors such as jasmine, oleander and poinsettia. In addition, the pollen of some flowers can cause allergies. Pollen usually contains some chemical composition. These chemical compounds can cause allergies if they fall on human skin or are absorbed by the human respiratory tract. In addition, expectant mothers should stay away from such flowers as much as possible. Flowers that can cause allergies include evergreen, chromatic globe, hydrangea, and evening primrose. In addition, the metabolism of pregnant women and babies is quite active. The oxygen supply in the room should be sufficient. However, flowers can absorb fresh oxygen and spit out carbon dioxide at night, which can reduce the amount of oxygen in the room and endanger the physical health of expectant mothers and fetuses.
Women can choose aloe and cactus if they really want to put flowers in the bedroom. The fragrance of these flowers is relatively mild. Also, these flowers can release oxygen at night and adjust the mood. Aloe can absorb some toxic substances such as formaldehyde to some extent. Cactus can help people resist radiation, so people can put cactus near computers. In addition, other flowers such as bracket plant, sansevieria, pleione and monstera deliciosa can also effectively help people purify the air. It is also a good choice for pregnant women to choose.
