March of Dimes New Year's Resolutions for a Healthy Baby


March of Dimes New Year's Resolutions for a Healthy Baby
January is Birth Defects Prevention Month and some premature births and birth defects may be avoided with a healthy lifestyle before and during pregnancy. The March of Dimes recommends seven New Year's resolutions to help give babies a healthy start.
       
  • Stop smoking and avoid second hand smoke. Smoking may make it harder to get pregnant and can increase the risk of premature birth.
  •    
  • Stop using alcohol and illegal drugs. They can cause lifelong health problems.
  •    
  • Check with your doctor before taking any medication, including herbal products.
  •    
  • Take a multivitamin containing 400 micrograms of folic acid daily previous to conception to help reduce the chance of a birth defect of the brain or spine called neural tube defects. NTDs, such as spina bifida and anencephaly, occur in the first few weeks after conception, often before a woman knows she's pregnant.
  •    
  • Maintain a healthy weight. Being very overweight or underweight can increase the risk of prematurity and birth defects.
  •    
  • Get a preconception checkup and ask your doctor how you can help give a baby 9 months of pregnancy.
  •    
  • Eat healthy -reduce caffeine, avoid fish high in mercury, raw and undercooked meat and unpasteurized juice and dairy products.
