Tobacco and pregnancy

Tobacco raises complication risks during pregnancy. Smoking tobacco need to be avoided during pregnancy. For support in quitting smoking, you can talk to your doctor or health care provider. Medication can be used as a quit smoking aid (gum, patch).

Alcohol and pregnancy

Alcohol is a toxin. When you drink alcohol, it rapidly reaches your baby through the placenta via your blood. Any alcohol drinking needs to be avoided during pregnancy. Even occasional drinking can be dangerous for your baby.

Drugs and pregnancy

Pregnancy for a woman-addicted user is a high-risk pregnancy. If you are concerned, you absolutely need to talk about it to your doctor or health care center.

Medicines and pregnancy

No medicines can be taken during pregnancy without your doctor approval.
Some vaccines may need to be administrated (e.g. tetanus when it’s not up-to-date), but most of them are advised against or contraindicated.
