The Don'ts of Pre-planning

The Don

Do my partner and I, both need to stop smoking and drinking

Yes. If you or your partner smoke, try to stop. This may be the most important thing you can do for your own and your baby's health. Both you and your partner should also try to limit your alcohol intake to as little as possible. The reason is that the healthier the egg and sperm, the greater the chances of a healthier baby.

Do I need to stop eating cheese

Avoid mould ripened soft cheese such as brie, camembert and blue-veined cheese; liver and liver products such as pate; all uncooked and raw or lightly cooked eggs.  These foods could cause miscarriages or stillbirths.

Are X-rays harmful

Yes, they could be very harmful to the baby, especially in the first few months.  If you are going to have an X-ray, even if it is a dental x-ray, mention to your doctor that you may be pregnant.
