Apart from depending on the health care provider so much, a woman can take great care of herself just through slight guidelines from the health care provider. This is because some things that an expectant woman is supposed to do are very obvious and she can do them with little assistance. During pregnancy, a woman should take proper care of herself and the baby too. There are activities that she is supposed to avoid so that she does not harm the baby for example, smoking.
Smoking will adversely affect the unborn simply because the smoke that is inhaled will go and block pores in the breathing system of the mother and since the foetus breaths through the mother, it will not be in a position to receive fresh air and thus it can suffocate due to this. Secondly, the smoke contains tar which is harmful if it settles in the lungs and there is a possibility that the tar can penetrate to the fetus which is very dangerous. This is one way you can take care of by avoiding smoking while you are pregnant.
