Prenatal Health Information
Your health during pregnancy and the health of your baby in the early years of life provide a firm foundation for your child’s future.
Parents face a big responsibility in caring for each other and their children. Prenatal information and support can help parents build a healthy family life and ease the early challenges of parenting.
There is no safe amount or time to drink alcohol during pregnancy and in fact, should be stopped before planning a pregnancy. Alcohol consumed during fetal development can present many risks to the unborn baby including brain damage and birth defects. Have an alcohol-free pregnancy - prevent Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
