Monsoon is one of the loved seasons by many. But along with it being a loved season, it is also a season that leads to a lot of infections. It’s important to prevent these infections during pregnancy as they can prove harmful to the fetus and also as we know that not all medications and antibiotics can be taken by the mother.

For the same, here are a few tips to follow during pregnancy

· Avoid water logging around your home.

· Use mosquito repellent to prevent infections caused by mosquito bites.

· Avoid consumption of junk foods even if you crave them as they can lead to infections that in turn can harm the fetus.

· Consume freshly cut fruits. Do not cut the fruits and keep them open for long before consumption.
