    Diving and Pregnancy - interesting information

    So, I'm sitting here in a Starbucks, chilling before a meeting and reading a rather in depth book on decompression theory and found a very interesting paragraph on why diving while pregnant is a bad idea and thought I'd share:

    "The fetus has no filters as the lungs are not yet working, thus any bubbles that reach the fetus can affect the fetus brain and spinal column (could be venous bubbles that do not affect the mother ). This is one of the main reasons not to dive while being pregnant."

    So essentially, the little one can take a DCS hit in utero.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)
