To avoid the risk of fetal defects, pregnant women should take notice of those following factors.

1.     High fever in early pregnancy

To pregnant women who have high fevers in the early pregnancy, their newborns will have no sign of defects but, the newborns still need long-term observation. When pregnant women have high fevers, fetal brain cells will be affected; fetuses will have a decrease of nervous cell number, which leads to intellectual disability.

Note: It’s not that every pregnant woman who has high fevers have abnormal children; it depends on the body of the pregnant and other undiscovered factors.

Having fevers, flu in pregnancy is considered to be one of the reasons causing fetal defects.

2.     Contacting with cats

There’re few people knowing that the bacteria parasitizing in cats can badly affect fetal development.

In England, there’re 40% of pregnant women who have infectious diseases from cats and 500 children who died for contacting with the bacteria in cats every year.

3.     Putting on heavy makeup

 According to a research in England, women who put on heavy makeup daily have 1,25 times the chance of having teratogenicity in comparison to women who didn’t.

The reason is that in cosmetics, there’re plenty of harmful substances, such as lead (Pb), mercury (Hg) and asen (as) which get into the body through the mucosa and skin, then enter to fetal bodies and cause bad effects on fetal normal developments.

Besides, some elements in cosmetics, when contacting to the sun, will turn to aromatic amines – a toxic product that are able to cause fetal defects.

4.     Stress

The human temper is under control of central nervous system and excretory systems. One of the excretory systems that closely relate to the changes of human temper is adrenal. When pregnant women get stressed, the hormones from adrenal can interfere the merging role of fetal embryonic tissues. If the stress occurs in the 3 first months of pregnancy, it will cause fetal defects which could be cleft lip or cleft palate.

5.     Drinking lots of alcohol

Women who drink lots of alcohol will have the alcohol entered the placenta and get in to the on-developing embryo, which causes bad effects on fetal health.

Drinking 2-4 glasses of alcohol a day can cause fetal deformity such as underdeveloped brain, ears and nose, thick, wide upper lip, etc.

During pregnancy, if pregnant women have more than 2 glasses of wine, it’ll badly affect fetal health. Drinking 2-4 glasses of alcohol a day can cause fetal deformity such as underdeveloped brain, ears and nose, thick, wide upper lip, etc.

6.     Eating poisoned foods

Specialists claim that if pregnant women eat contaminate foods (moldy foods), foods that have toxic products, the bacteria can get through the placenta, harm fetuses and transform chromosome cells.

7.     Imbalanced diet

One of the important factors affecting fetal health is the diet.

In pregnancy, some women wanted to save shape so they applied diets. They didn’t know that their diets can lead to severe fetal malformation.

Some fetuses who don’t receive more nutrients can have malnutrition and risks of fetal defects.

8.     Late delivery

Late delivery also raises the risk of fetal defects. If pregnant women are over 35 years old and their husbands are over 50, there’re fewer chances that fetuses will normally develop.

Especially, pregnant women who work in harsh environment, have to contact with chemicals, pesticides, dyes… can also affect fetal health.

9.     Taking medicines arbitrarily

Pregnant women who arbitrarily use antibiotics, anti-thyroid drugs and anti-cancer drugs can make their fetuses have defects in nervous systems, urinary tracts and limbs. Using acne medication can lead to the same results.

According to FDA, pregnant women shouldn’t use drugs that belong with X group because of the high risk of fetal deformation. In the drug group, there’s Thalilomide which is used for sedative treatments and antiemetic so that people often overuse it, especially to treat nausea.

The popular phenomenon of newborns is that they don’t have limps that normally develop; they have organ defects and distorted faces. In 1960, Thalilomide was dispelled from the market. In 2005, England, people built a statue of fetuses who had defects because their moms had used Thalilomide to warn people not to use the drug. A apart from Thalilomide, there’re the pill, reproductive medicines, acne medications, anticancer drugs and epilepsy cures.   

In case of having chicken spot, rubella in pregnancy, it’s really dangerous because of its extreme risk of fetal defects.

10.  What’re the preventions?

To not suffer from the pitiful situation, future mothers should take notice of the following information.

3 months before the conception, you should drink one tablet of folic acid a day. That will prevent fetuses from risks of severe birth defects, such as open neural tube defect, hydrocepharus…

Women who have cardiac disease, blood pressure problems, diabetes and thyroid diseases should have their diseases cured before pregnancy.

To prevent rubella and chicken spot during pregnancy, you’d better have vaccinations before getting married and have other vaccination at least 3 months before pregnancy.

Having healthy babies is every mother’s wish.

Pregnant women should have recurring gestational test to have prenatal diagnosis.

Pregnant women should have recurring gestational test to have prenatal diagnosis. With screening tests, doctors can diagnose fetal defects and have timely treatments.

The most ideal time to have fetal defect diagnosed is between 12th-13th weeks. Fetuses that are more than 28 weeks old will face with more difficulties in treating. Pregnant women should take this in notice and have ultrasound tests soon.

11.  Eating

·         Avoid eating fishes that have high level of mercury, such as shark, swordfish, mackerel, marlin…

·         Eat the small amount of fishes that have low level of mercury, such as salmon, tuna, Pollock fish, catfish…

·         Do not eat vegetables that start to grow bud because they often contain lots of toxic products; milk, butter products, unpasteurized cheeses, raw fish, meat, egg; poisoned foods, foods with strange smells; alcohol; foods that have lots of caffeine, cocaine…

·         Wash hands, processing tools, food containers. Take general examinations before pregnancy to find out and have timely treatments for infectious diseases or sexual transmitted ones.

Pregnant women shouldn’t shark meat because of its high level of mercury.

Note: Some of the toxic source can remain in the body in a considerable long period of time, even when you aren’t pregnant. Hence, this is a synoptic note for human health, especially for pregnant women and women who are planning to be.
