A community prenatal group talks about the importance of avoiding harmful substances like drugs and alcohol during pregnancy.
Our Community supports healthy pregnancies...
At our prenatal group, we tell moms and dads about the risks of drinking and taking drugs during pregnancy.
Young Pregnant Woman:
There's no safe time or safe amount to drink. I quit drinking before getting pregnant.
I wanted her to know that she is not alone. So I quit too!
Drinking during pregnancy can lead to life-long disabilities for your baby. Taking drugs during pregnancy -- even in small amounts -- can also be very harmful to your baby.
Our Children are our future. Give them a healthy start! If you're pregnant, it's important to visit your health care provider early. For more information on healthy pregnancy go to healthycanadians.ca or call toll-free at 1 800 622-6232.
