Avoiding Toxins and Hazardous Materials

Every woman should know if the chemicals and products in their home and at work are potentially dangerous. Some hazardous exposures can cause problems with pregnancy, including miscarriage and birth defects.

Hazardous materials include:

  • Bug spray
  • Fertilizer
  • Cat/rodent feces

Check the warning labels of cleaning and maintenance products at your home and work environment. Learn about any hazardous materials at your workplace by checking your employer’s Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).

Financial Stability

Financial stability means making a short- and long-term plan to take care of yourself and your growing family. Following a plan for the money you have makes it possible to pay for what you need and want–now and in the future.

Not controlling your finances can lead to problems, including:

  • Not having enough money to buy healthy foods
  • Not being able to see a doctor regularly
  • More stress and anxiety, which can harm your health and relationships
