Can pregnant or nursing women use Red Light treatment?

Dr. Michael Hamblin,* one of the leading photomedicine researchers in the world, believes red light therapy may be very beneficial during pregnancy due to the prevalence of stem cells. However, there has been no clinical research with red light therapy treatments on pregnant or nursing subjects, so we recommend consulting withyour healthcare provider.
