10 things that are dangerous for pregnancy

The journey to motherhood is an explosion of emotions. If it isn’t tears of joy at the prospect of a new life growing inside you, it is tears of worry that the two of you will make it to the end of the road, unscathed.

In our daily lives, there are many activities that we commonly do which are actually dangerous to do as an expectant mummy. The obvious ones such as drinking and smoking are known to be dangerous for pregnancy. But what are the other ones?

Here is a list of the things you need to avoid to help keep your pregnancy journey a safe one for you and your baby.

A little summer fun may include going to an amusement or water park but refrain from going on those thrill rides. Waterslides and roller-coasters, as well as other activities where you can take a tumble, are definitely a no-no for you and your bump. If you do visit a waterpark, stick to a gentle swim, and opt for the safer rides at amusement parks.

Anything that creates stress should be avoided. Stress hormones are not beneficial for you or your baby. So for the next nine months, alter your lifestyle to accommodate the new life that is growing inside of you.
