Using a heating pad while you're pregnant is safe.

When applied to a specific area of the body, a heating pad can provide relief without raising your core body temperature.

If your core temperature gets elevated early on in pregnancy, it can increase the risk of neural tube defects such as spina bifida. This is why women are advised to avoid hot tubs and saunas while pregnant.

Pain can be a sign of potentially serious complications, such as a detached placenta or a uterine rupture, so alert your doctor if your pain is not obviously from overexertion.
