Tips for keeping pregnant women, babies safe in storm

(WTNH)– This kind of weather is dangerous for everyone especially pregnant women and babies.

Here are some tips to keep them safe:

  • Take extra precautions
  • If you feel like you may be going in to labor, do not wait to call for help. Bad roads mean it could take longer for help to arrive.
  • Stock up on food that’s high in protein and low in fat.
  • If you have a baby and must go to a shelter, bring a safe place for your baby to sleep.
  • Stock up on diapers
  • Make sure you have the right type of food for your baby to eat.
