Q&A: Are Pregnant Women More Likely to Get Sunburned?

Is it true pregnant women are more likely to get sunburned?

No, I don't think you're more likely to get sunburned when you're pregnant. But you are at risk for melasma (also called chloasma), which is a darkening of the skin that can be caused by sun exposure. So remember to wear sunscreen!
