Health Tip: A Few 'Don'ts' During Pregnancy

(HealthDay News) -- You're probably tired of all of the "don't do this" advice you've heard during your pregnancy.

But the American Academy of Family Physicians says it's very important to heed a few of them, namely:

  • Don't smoke.
  • Don't use illicit drugs.
  • Don't drink alcohol.
  • Don't clean the cat's litter box.
  • Don't eat raw meat.
  • Don't use a sauna or hot tub.
  • Don't douche. Just bathe normally.
