Teratogens...Is Your baby in DANGER??

What is a Teratogen? "An exposure during pregnancy that has a harmful fetal effect." (Holmes, L., 2008 p2)

You may be exposed to harmful toxins, substances or diseases before you even know you are pregnant. Having a drink at a party? Smoking? Taking medications? These things and more can be extremely damaging to the fetus.
