Help Prevent Birth Defects: Steps you can take
Update: 2012-03-09
Although birth defects can't always be prevented, there are plenty of steps pregnant women can take to help reduce the risk.

The womenshealth.gov website offers these suggestions:
  • Make regular visits to your doctor throughout pregnancy.

  • Get 400 mcg of folic acid each day through diet or supplements.

  • Don't smoke, use illegal drugs or drink alcohol while you're pregnant.

  • Always check with your doctor before taking any medication.

  • Get all vaccinations recommended by your doctor.

  • If you have diabetes, keep it under control.

  • Stick to a healthy body weight.
