Healthy Choices

  • Stay active and exercise regularly, check with your doctor to learn what exercises are safe for you to do.
  • Get help to quit smoking. Exposing your baby to tobacco during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, premature birth, and low birth weight
  • Eating a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and plenty of carbohydrates, fats, and protein is important for your baby’s healthy development during your pregnancy.
  • You should avoid drugs and alcohol as soon as you begin trying to be pregnant. Drugs and alcohol can harm your chances of conceiving. Drug and alcohol use can lead to poor birth outcomes such as preterm birth, miscarriage, low birth rates, and fetal alcohol syndrome.
  • Once you become pregnant you are more vulnerable to diseases and being up to date on all vaccines can help protect you and your baby.
