Can you paint whilst pregnant? I really want to paint my baby's nursery but my family are saying I shouldn't.

Yes, but keep the windows open and take lots of breaks as it's tiring. Avoid paint thinners though xx

Why not? I've painted most my house during pregnancy. Never thought about it being 'bad' 😂

It’s perfectly safe with waterbased paints. I work for a paint company.

Water based paints are fine, but still best to ventilate the room. You can always wear disposable gloves if you think you might get messy too. Why don't your family offer to help paint it with you? You do the easy bits with a roller and they can cut in around the ceiling and around skirting.
