Healthy Lifestyle

Smoking is bad for your baby, bad for your bones, and bad for your heart and lungs. Talk to your doctor about quitting. He or she can suggest resources to help you. Alcohol is also bad for pregnant and breastfeeding women and their babies, and excess alcohol is bad for the bones. Be sure to follow your doctor's orders to avoid alcohol during this important time.
