Asbestos exposure

Hello: I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant and just found out that our garage contains disturbed asbestos.  I even touched some before I knew what it was.  What is the risk to me and my baby?  I'm most concerned about my baby.  Thanks.

Hi there!

Asbestos is unlikely to affect the baby; while the risk in an individual would still be very low with a single exposure.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
