Did you know that a pregnancy is most affected by hazards before many women even know they are pregnant?
some of those hazards are: alcohol, cannabis, tobacco, some over-the-counter prescriptions, some "natural" supplements, environmental toxins, sexually transmitted infections, workplace conditions and more.
It is important to tell your healthcare provider about all over-the-counter medications, herbal supplements, and other drugs that you are taking as well as your precription medications
If your healthcare provider knows that you are trying to get pregnant, he/she may make changes to the type and/or dose of medications that you are taking.
