Hi Histonetters,

I actually just had a healthy baby girl 8/10/07  and was a high risk 
pregnancy ( diabetic) while finishing my HT and working full time in the 
histo lab at Mayo.  I was advised by my OB to limit my formalin 
exposure, to limit my xylene exposure as much as possible, and to be 
very careful in special stains area.  To also be careful of B-5 which we 
use for our bone marrows and the list goes on.  Basically I was limited 
to cutting and embedding most days.

Hope this helps!

Laurie Popp, BA HT ( ASCP)
and happy mommy to Kaiana :-)
