Patient :Hi, I'm 4 months pregnant and living with a brachy therapy patient. We live in separate rooms but the rooms are next to each other. There have been a few times when the patient was less than 3 feet away from me, but never for long, we would swiftly pass each other but however the distances are sometimes 2-3 feet. Is that harmful to the unborn baby? Is the exposure of less than 3 feet at times high?
