What does mold and mildew smell like?
In my bedroom their is a musty smell that almost smells like cedar. I am pregnant almost due and am worrying if it is a serious health danger to my baby or a health danger at all. Please let me know! I am very concerned!

Yuck! You dont even want to know. Its like a farm, with cheese. That is it exactly

Glenda B.
It smells like mold and mildew. And probably NOT good for the baby.

Adam P
Like old people. Seriously though, check your walls and in your closet for black spots. It is definitely not good for you or your baby.

Jaylene T

nothin will happen 2 ur baby
i think

well it smealls like poo and messed up detergent and like a weedy garden all in one

Why don't you smell it?

Look at me!
uhhh. Smelly.

Look for black spots on wood surfaces. The stinky smell sounds like mold. If you are having headaches.....its mold.

Mold poses a SERIOUS to both your baby and yourself especially if it is Toxic Black Mold

The smell is musty and dirty like wet dirt and sometimes like stale cigarette smoke

If you have mold and mildew in your bath tub than you can clean it with bleach.. If it is unseen you should have a professional check your walls and ceilings for water damage and black mold.. If it is black mold you will have to leave

Symptoms of mold spores are allergies, sinus infections itching, rashes. difficulty catching your breath, chronic coughing

it could be, ask your landlord to fix it if you live in an apartment because it is their duty.

if it's your house it can usually be pretty expensive to get rid of mold and mildew professionally.

it smells like damp clothes i would say, but worse.

a wet mop

Sometimes dirty socks to me. That is only my opinion. Sometimes it is hard to describe.

Yeah, that's most likely mold or mildew. Has there been any known water damage? Flooding, maybe a large spill on carpet, or a leaking roof or water pipe? If so, I would guess that there is some mold or mildew. The only way you can know for sure is to contact a professional who can test for mold in the air Or buy a home testing kit.

Mold and mildew are not good for anyones health. It can affect the lungs, and cause asthma and other chronic diseases. I would strongly suggest getting the house checked out to make sure that there is or isn't mold. If you just noticed the smell, and you are due in a month to a couple of weeks, I'm sure you will deliver a perfectly normal baby. However long term expose may be bad.

A lot of evidence states that the development of allergies and asthma actually begins in the womb. This is especially the case with asthma. Researchers are finding out that asthma may not be genetic at all. It is caused by triggers in the environment. Studies show that asthma sufferers develop the condition at some point in their lives due to exposure to toxins, such as mold. It may begin in the uterus.

Some studies have suggested that there may be a link between Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and exposure to black mold in the womb. There are also a variety of chronic fatigue illnesses that children who have been exposed to mold may suffer. Still, the studies have not been done to show whether this is fully the case or not.

What You Can Do

If you have just found that you are pregnant, or if you are just starting to worry about mold, you should get your home or workplace tested for mold. You can get a home testing kit from the hardware store. It is probably a good idea to start off your pregnancy in a mold-free environment. Nobody knows the exact relation between mold and birth defects, allergies and asthma, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

For your baby's health, it is also important to keep your house mold-free after birth. There are no studies showing that mold has an effect on breast feeding, but mold is definitely unhealthy for your baby's general health.

One more thing to think about is your workplace. Many women work in the early or middle stages of pregnancy and it is often more difficult to find mold in a building where you work than in your home. Ask your boss about mold inspections, especially if you work in an old building. If you can see or smell mold in your workplace, you are definitely in danger.

If your boss or supervisor will not do anything about the mold problem, you can seek a legal solution. There are laws to protect you and your unborn baby's health.

I hope you deliver a perfectly normal healthy baby, and that your house is not infected with mold. I also hope this helped. Essie
