Alcohol

Your health

A healthy lifestyle is important both for you and your baby. Here are a few essential precautions you can take.

Alcohol

Consuming alcohol, even on an occasional or moderate basis, carries high risks for the baby. “Zero” consumption is recommended during pregnancy and when breastfeeding.

Tobacco

Tobacco is toxic both for you and your baby. Quitting smoking at any stage of the pregnancy is beneficial and reduces the risk of complications both for the fetus and the new-born baby.
