Daft question but is it just third tri you can't go near lambs/lambing ewes?
We are off to a farm tomorrow and you can feed the lambs, this Ia fine didn't it? No one knows so I don't want to ask infront of anyone, but at the same time I doubt anyone would put 2+2 together
in previous pregnancys this would have been a phonecall to the consultant but I'm being cool now so will ask here instead

I know several pregnant women who just didn't bother going in lambing season, but I think you're right, you just stay away from those areas, they usually put specific signs up for those zones don't they? Or maybe it's changed...
I'm no help!

I went a month ago there were signs up near the lambs saying pregnant women shouldn't touch the lambs & I let my hubby help my daughter feed the older lambs. I don't think you need to worry too much, I think it's more about the blood & placenta with the lambs being born. Just wash your hands thoroughly & don't touch the lambs. Other than that have fun!

Great thanks. I wasn't sure if it was just third tri. We can hang round the lamb feeding bit then and il just pretend that I'm a bit scared or something il figure something out thanks x

Same rules for goats as sheep (my sister lives on a goat farm!)

I went to a farm when I was pregnant with O. I just didn't touch anything and washed my hands regularly - paranoia...

We went for O's birthday last week and there were lots of signs up...applies to sheep and goats. I just let H and O do the feeding, could you be on picture duty to hide it iyswim? I enjoyed just taking pics of them feeding the animals x
