Prevent Birth Defects: Steps you can take
« on: July 07, 2012, 12:10:46 PM »

Although birth defects can't always be prevented, there are plenty of steps pregnant women can take to help reduce the risk.

The womenshealth.gov website offers these suggestions:

   1.  Make regular visits to your doctor throughout pregnancy.

   2.  Get 400 mcg of folic acid each day through diet or supplements.

  3.  Don't smoke, use illegal drugs or drink alcohol while you're pregnant.

  4.  Always check with your doctor before taking any medication.

  5.  Get all vaccinations recommended by your doctor.

  6.  If you have diabetes, keep it under control.

  7.  Stick to a healthy body weight.
