Smoking and drinking alcohol whilst TTC

Any woman who is trying to get pregnant should quit unhealthy habits as soon as possible and start a healthy lifestyle routine. Toxic habits may hinder the TTC process and even affect fetal health.

Nicotine inhibits the transportation of oxygen to the fetus and may cause respiratory issues in the unborn child. Alcoholic drinks can cause physical and mental damages in the baby.

Moreover, smoking and drinking alcohol during pregnancy increases the risk of miscarriage.
