Pregnancy Tips

Here are some helpful tips and links for you during your pregnancy.

- Get supports in place before you have your baby (family, friends, support workers or whoever else you need).

- Go to your prenatal appointments. This shows that you are taking care of yourself and your baby.

- Get in touch with a hospital social worker because they are there to help you get everything in place before your baby is born.

- Zero alcohol and drugs is the safest choice.

- Smoke as little as you can. Smoke outside so you don’t breathe the same smoke more than once. Ask friends and family to please smoke outside, away from you and your baby. Think about quitting. Visit the Helpful Links page for resources that can help you quit.

- Try your best to always be honest with your doctor, nurse or midwife about your pregnancy and what is going on in your life.

- If you are having pain, or changes in the discharge (stuff) coming from your vagina, or any other symptoms that you’re thinking about, please ask us about it.

Remember: you know your body best! If something doesn’t feel right, get it checked out. Trust yourself!

Write down the questions that you want to ask. Even if it’s not your first pregnancy, you might have things to ask.

Here is a list of signs that you might be in labour. This list can help you know when the baby is coming.
