No Puffing When Pregnant

Be cognizant of secondhand smoke, as it puts a woman and her unborn baby at risk for serious health problems. Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes have not been proven a safe alternative.

Pregnant? Avoid Alcohol

There is no known safe amount of alcohol use during pregnancy or while trying to conceive. All types of alcohol are equally harmful, including all wine and beer. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, and a range of lifelong physical, behavioral, and intellectual disabilities. These disabilities are known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). The best course of action is to stop all alcohol consumption when you start trying to conceive, says NurseWise, a nurse triage and health education provider.
