Accordages : new consultation

Christened Accordages (FR), a consultation has been created to provide childcare guidance for parents of babies aged between 0 and 6 months who are finding it difficult to cope with their new responsibilities.

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.

Vaccination

Vaccination and pregnancy

It is always better to prevent than to treat. Some infectious diseases can be avoided through vaccination. Influenza and whooping cough are particularly dangerous during pregnancy. Vaccination against these two diseases remains possible during the pregnancy and even during the post-partum period. The vaccine is useful as it avoids maternal and fetal complications while preserving your baby’s health up to a few weeks after his/her birth.
