drinking during pregnancy

drinking while pregnantWhen you first realize that you are pregnant you experience no greater joy. But once the reality sets in, it is time to re-evaluate your lifestyle and cut out unhealthy behaviors for the sake of your child. No one really knows how much alcohol is harmful to a baby, so the best advice is to avoid drinking all together. Even though, there is no more important time to stop than when you are pregnant, many women find it difficult to stop. Here are some tips to help get you started.

Avoid situations where you usually drink, like parties or bars.
Ask your health care provider about alcohol treatment programs.
Ask your partner, family and friends to help you stay away from alcohol.

Join an Alcoholics Anonymous support group. Their telephone number is in the white pages or community service pages of your local telephone book.

For some women, this is a time that they become aware of their own addiction to Alcohol, drugs, cigarettes and other substances. Don't go it alone. There is help.
