Healthy pregnancy - Here's how!

A healthy lifestyle is key!

If pregnancy is in your future, having a healthy lifestyle is the best thing you can do for your developing baby.

HOW?

Avoid TERATOGENS!


What are teratogens, you ask? They are harmful things that can hurt the fetus while you are pregnant.


Here are some examples:


  • Alchohol and drugs
  • Cigarettes
  • Environmental pollution
  • Some diseases

Teratogens can harm the baby's developing body and brain. No amount of teratogens is a safe amount.
