Tips for Mom’s-To-Be:


If you think you may be pregnant go for a prenatal checkup now. It is important to go for early prenatal checkups and ALL scheduled prenatal checkups. This can help your baby to be born healthy.

If you think you may be pregnant, it is important for you and your baby’s health that you:


  • Eat a variety of healthy foods everyday.
  • Drink 6-8 glasses of water each day.
  • Wear your seat belt at all times.
  • Keep all your health care appointments.
  • Eat three (3) meals at regular times during the day.


To prevent causing any harm to you or your baby:


  • Don’t smoke. Tobacco of any kind will harm you and your baby. Smoking increases the chances that your baby is born too soon or too small.
  • Don’t drink alcohol (beer, wine, wine cooler, liquor). Drinking alcohol can cause birth defects.
  • Don’t use any street drugs (crack, cocaine, marijuana, PCP). Street drugs can hurt you and your baby. Your baby could have serious mental or physical problems that can last for years.
  • Don’t take any medicine, even an aspirin or anything prescribed before you were pregnant. Always check with your doctor before using any over the counter or prescription drugs.
