Nutrition Information for Pregnancy

Birth defects sometimes happen, but there are things prospective parents can do to give themselves the best chance to have a healthy baby. January is National Birth Defects Prevention Month, and it’s an opportune time to help people get the facts about healthy pregnancies and birth defects prevention.

Not all birth defects can be prevented. But there are things you can do—like getting exercise and making nutritious food choices—that can increase your chances for a healthy pregnancy. Most people know to avoid tobacco and alcohol. But did you know that kitty litter may cause a problem during pregnancy? Check out this list of things to avoid and what’s okay if you’re pregnant.

Your Safety and Well-being is our Priority

On behalf of all of us at Women’s Health Partners, in these difficult times, we want to thank you for your support and confidence in our practice.

We want you to personally know that our patients’ health and well-being has and always will be our number one priority. This reminder bears repeating in the face of any challenges and especially now, given concerns posed by the corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being and that of our staff. To that end, we want to share some of the steps we are taking:

Furthermore, our staff will be asking several screening questions regarding your health. We ask that you do not enter our office if you, or someone in your family, or someone you recently were in contact with, has exhibited flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, severe muscle aches, shaking chills, or recent loss of taste or smell, or recently diagnosed with COVID19.

In order to help us participate with our social distancing effort, we are asking patients to enter the office without any visitors, including children.

You will also have the option of waiting in your car instead of the waiting room after you have checked in. The front desk staff will call your cell phone when we are ready for you to come in for your visit.
