National Birth Defects Prevention Month

January is National Birth Defects Prevention Month

Birth defects are common, costly, and critical. In the United States, a baby is born with a birth defect every 4 ½ minutes leading to 120,000 babies being affected each year. Birth defects are the most common cause of death in the first year of life and the second most common cause of death in children aged one to four years. Although not all birth defects can be prevented, steps can be taken to increase a woman’s chance of having a healthy baby. Some infections before and during pregnancy can increase the risk of birth defects and other health problems. Join the effort to raise awareness of birth defects by encouraging all women to prevent infections for their baby’s protection. Here are some helpful tips for pregnant women or women who may become pregnant: Get vaccinated. Get the flu shot and whooping cough vaccine. Become up-to-date with all vaccines before getting pregnant. Prevent insect bites. Use insect repellent. Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outside. Consider avoiding travel to areas with Zika virus. Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands often with soap and water. Avoid putting a young child’s cup or pacifier in your mouth.

COVID Vaccines & Boosters

COVID-19 Vaccines & Pregnancy

Evidence about the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy, although limited, has been growing. It suggests that the benefits of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine outweigh any known or potential risks of vaccination during pregnancy. Below is a brief summary of the growing evidence: COVID-19 vaccines do not cause COVID-19 infection, including in people who are pregnant or their babies. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain live virus and cannot make anyone sick with COVID-19, including people who are pregnant or their babies. Early data on the safety of receiving an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech) during pregnancy are reassuring. Early data suggest receiving an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy reduces the risk for infection. Vaccination during pregnancy builds antibodies that might protect the baby. No safety concerns were found in animal studies. No adverse pregnancy-related outcomes occurred in previous clinical trials that used the same vaccine platform as the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for people who are pregnant. In addition, everyone who is ages 18 and older, including those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future, should get a booster shot. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine ...

Cervical Cancer Risk Reduction

January is Cervical Cancer Screening Month

January is Cervical Cancer Screening Month, and we want you to know that there’s a lot you can do to prevent cervical cancer. Each year, more than 11,000 women in the United States get cervical cancer. HPV (human papillomavirus) is a very common infection that spreads through sexual activity, and it causes almost all cases of cervical cancer. About 79 million Americans currently have HPV, but many people with HPV don’t know they are infected. The good news? The HPV vaccine (shot) can prevent HPV. Cervical cancer can often be prevented with regular screening tests and follow-up care. In honor of National Cervical Cancer Screening Month, we encourage: Women to start getting regular cervical cancer screenings at age 21. Parents to make sure pre-teens get the HPV vaccine at age 11 or 12. Teens and young adults also need to get the HPV vaccine if they didn’t get it as pre-teens. Women up to age 26 and men up to age 21 can still get the vaccine. You and your family members may be able to get these services at no cost to you. Check with your insurance company to learn more ...

Holiday Advice for Soon to Be Moms

Holiday Advice for Moms-to-Be & New Moms

Here are some common questions for moms-to-be and new moms: I’m pregnant. Is an occasional glass of wine okay? There is no “safe” level of alcohol during pregnancy. Exposure to alcohol has a direct effect on your baby’s brain development throughout, and even after, pregnancy. Avoid risks by choosing nonalcoholic beverages. What about drinking alcohol if I’m breastfeeding? It takes about 2 to 2½ hours for each standard serving of alcohol to clear from breast milk. (A standard serving is 12 ounces of beer, 4 to 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of hard liquor.) Pumping and discarding breast milk, drinking water, taking caffeine or exercising cannot help your body metabolize alcohol faster. Is it okay to use over-the-counter cold medicines? Read labels carefully. Multi-Symptom cold formulas may contain alcohol or additional ingredients you don’t need. Use cold medicines at the lowest effective dose for the shortest time needed, and follow dosing instructions carefully. Decongestants should be used sparingly, especially if you have high blood pressure, you smoke, or you’re taking medications to reduce fever, pain or inflammation. Also, try to avoid decongestants during your first trimester unless allergy symptoms affect your ability to sleep and breathe — both ...

12 Ways to Have a Healthy Holiday Season

Brighten the holidays by making your health and safety a priority. Take steps to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy—and ready to enjoy the holidays. 1. Wash hands often to help prevent the spread of germs. It’s flu season. Wash your hands with soap and clean running water for at least 20 seconds. 2. Bundle up to stay dry and warm. Wear appropriate outdoor clothing: light, warm layers, gloves, hats, scarves, and waterproof boots. 3. Manage stress. Give yourself a break if you feel stressed out, overwhelmed, and out of control. Some of the best ways to manage stress are to find support, connect socially, and get plenty of sleep. 4. Don’t drink and drive or let others drink and drive. Whenever anyone drives drunk, they put everyone on the road in danger. Choose not to drink and drive and help others do the same. 5. Be smoke-free. Avoid smoking and secondhand smoke. Smokers have greater health risks because of their tobacco use, but nonsmokers also are at risk when exposed to tobacco smoke. 6. Fasten seat belts while driving or riding in a motor vehicle. Always buckle your children in the car using a child safety ...
