Healthy Pregnancy Tips

What to do While You’re Pregnant

To help increase your chance of a healthy pregnancy and decrease the risk of premature birth and stillbirth, the Global Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth (GAPPS), an initiative of Seattle Children’s, has compiled a list of recommendations. Please keep in mind that even if every known precaution were followed, there would still be only a small reduction in preterm births. This is why there is a critical need for more research into the causes of prematurity and stillbirth.
