    I would advise her not to, because of the noise and lead exposure.

    +2.

    My pregnant wife before was not allowed to shoot in jetro(festival mall) due to lead exposure daw according to the safety officer. She ended up shopping alot to minimize her disappointment.

    Same here, a lot of shooting ranges here doese not allow pregnant women particularly on their first trimester. This the most critical period of pregnancy. Exposure to lead is a known cause of birth defects on fetus and the other factor is "Shock waves" from muzzle blast.:nono:
