The following are useful tips for pregnant women to help them conduct the best pregnancy practices and take good care of themselves during this very important season in their lives.
1. Avoid Alcohol Tobacco and ‘illicits’
You probably have seen or heard of pregnant women who smoke and take illicit drugs during pregnancy. Doing this is dangerous and can lead to harming your body or lead to miscarriage and other health dangers for you and the baby.
Taking Alcohol tobacco and illicit drugs can harm your child. Both you and the child are now sharing the same blood and therefore it is highly possible that you can harm the unborn.
Unfortunately, most of those that smoke, take alcohol were probably doing so before they and are now pregnant and don't know what to do. If this is your situation seek immediate medical advice to assist you on what foods and drinks to take while pregnant.
2. Take a Lot of Water and Liquids
