Pregnant in the OR - total joints

Recommended Posts

Looking for advice.

Ortho PA here. My husband and I are discussing having children. I assist in surgery at my job- total joints. Total knees that use cement (PMMA) and fluro for total hips. Looking for advice from others who have been in this potential situation (trying to get pregnant/pregnant in the OR) and when you leave the room for the cement, how many layers of lead you have worn, and how you have approached your supervising doc about the sensitive subject.
