Helpful Hint:

The best way a mom-to-be can promote the health and safety of her unborn baby is by taking care of herself.

This includes adopting a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and regular physical activity. It means getting medical care throughout the pregnancy and taking extra precautions when a condition such as diabetes or HIV exists. A healthy mom recognizes the harmful effects of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco on her unborn baby and chooses to say “no.” Also, a responsible mom looks out for her own safety, which includes getting help if she is the victim of domestic violence.

If you want to have a healthy baby, start now by being a healthy and safe mom-to-be. This section of the site gives you valuable information and tips to help you do just that.
