Risk Factors

There are many things a pregnant woman should stay away from. Some things are pretty obvious, while others may not be. Make sure you stay away from caffeine. It may be very hard to give up, but it’s very important to cut back your daily intake while you’re pregnant. Definitely make sure you stay away from drugs and alcohol. These could harm your baby and if your baby does survive, it may be born with a disability or worse. Also, if you have an eating disorder, it will affect your baby. Whatever you eat, your baby gets and if you don’t eat or you binge and throw it up, your baby will not get the nourishment it needs to grow and develop. This can also cause emotional difficulties for you as the mother.

If you like working out in the garden and use pesticides to keep your garden growing, you will want to either avoid your garden, or find some way of getting rid of the chemicals or find something that won’t be harmful to you and your baby.

There are also problems that can occur after you deliver your baby. Postpartum hemorrhaging is very dangerous to women and you should be aware that if you start bleeding heavily, you should see your doctor immediately. Also, if you are over the age of 35 and are pregnant or trying to get pregnant, there are complications that could come up during pregnancy that could hurt you or your baby.

Although there are many things a pregnant woman needs to stay away from to have a healthy pregnancy, there are some things you need to have that you may not know of. Folic acid is very important to take starting about a month before you conceive until the end of your first trimester to prevent birth defects. Folic acid helps reduce the risk of spina bifida by up to 70 percent. If you have any questions, make sure you talk to your doctor. It is very important that you know what problems there are because every woman should want the best possible pregnancy.
