Alcohol and Drugs
The placenta doesn't filter all chemicals. Substances that can pass through to your baby and can be damaging include:
From flea collars to taxoplasmosis, pet sprays to salmonella, your furry (or not so furry) friends bring challenges along with their love and companionship.
Your baby doesn't have the ability to sweat and cool down in the womb. Higher temps can raise the baby's temp to dangerous levels. Try to keep your temp below 101°F.
