Watching Horror/Scary Movies while pregnant?


Hiya, has anyone else been told not to watch horror films while pregnant? it seems to be a tale that goes around in my family .. i've never actually thought to ask a midwife about it.. have any of you heard this?

Apparently if it makes you jump/tense/scared its bad for the baby..

I think your family are talking pants. Women have been pregnant through wars and still had babys.

Prolonged stress is bad for baby but a scary film wont do any harm.

it wont harm baby but they do pick up on your mood. This is a recent article on mother's watching films and the baby picking up on the mums emotion:
