Healthy Choices: A Way to Prevent Birth Defects

Healthy Choices: A Way to Prevent Birth Defects

As a provider of pediatric care in Orange County, we know that not all birth defects can be prevented, but a mother keeping a healthy lifestyle can increase their chances of having a healthy baby.

The CDC recommends pregnant or attempting women to do the following before and during pregnancy:

  • Boost yourself with folic acid
    Getting 400 micrograms of folic acid a day can help prevent major birth defects of the brain and spine if taken at least a month before and during the pregnancy.
  • Avoid harmful substances
    Substances such as alcohol, cigarettes, marijuana, and any other drug can be harmful to your baby.
  • Choose a healthier lifestyle
    Strive to maintain or reach a healthy weight. Obesity increases a pregnant woman’s risk of serious birth defects. For people with underlying conditions such as diabetes, it may also increase the risk of birth defects if left uncontrolled.
  • See a healthcare professional regularly
    Seeing a doctor as soon as you think you are pregnant can help monitor your pregnancy. You can also ask them if certain medications you are taking can cause birth defects.
