Pregnant + ESD equipment = safe?
I just found out that I am pregnant, I am guessing around 6 weeks. I work with a lot of ESD equipment:
I wear ESD shoes
work on an ESD mat
Wear an ESD bracelet that hooks into my ESD worktable
The entire floor at my job is ESD coated....
is this safe? should I be worried? Work is torture thinking about this, I just want to have a safe pregnancy and do not want to tell my superiors that I am pregnant yet.
My job never explained exactly how the ESD equipment works, meaning if its disperses static from the body in a certain way or if it keeps it from dispersing at all, i don't know all I know if I'm petrified of harming my baby.

I see no reason to be worried. But if you feel the ESD protection is too much, I can give you a few shocks.
