Substances to Avoid During Your Pregnancy
Being pregnant is wonderful, but it does mean that looking after your health and the health of your baby has become even more important. Whilst you are pregnant, there are some substances that you should really try to avoid. Which ones are they and what damage can they do? 
 
Firstly, it really is important that you don’t smoke when you're pregnant. This is because carbon monoxide, nicotine and other toxic chemicals from cigarettes cross the placenta and go directly into the baby’s blood stream, so in reality, your baby smokes with you.

Home Pregnancy Massage
Massage during pregnancy has gained a lot in popularity within recent years. Originally, it tended to be limited to groups of women who favoured alternative therapies. But now it is seen as a valid and useful means of reducing general pregnancy discomfort. 
 
Massage therapy is generally safe and incredibly beneficial throughout pregnancy, including the first trimester. However, getting a massage is a little like gentle exercise for your body; it increases your blood and lymph circulation, making your heart work just a bit harder.
