Health Tip: What to Avoid During Pregnancy
Things to stay away from

(HealthDay News) -- While moms-to-be are peppered with advice of what to do and what not to do during pregnancy, there is some sound guidance.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests:

  • Avoiding smoking and drug use during pregnancy, reducing the risk of serious complications.
  • Avoiding alcohol during pregnancy to protect baby from fetal alcohol syndrome and other birth defects.
  • Having someone else clean out your cat's litter box to avoid toxoplasmosis.
  • Cooking meat properly to prevent food-related illness.
  • Staying away from hot tubs, saunas and other sources of high heat.
  • Avoiding douching.
