Today is for me. It’s my health and today I’m choosing to be alcohol and marijuana free.
Remember, today is for you.
You’re already making healthy choices for yourself. Whether or not you are planning to become pregnant, making health decisions is something you do every day. When you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant, you are also making healthy choices for your baby’s health. Avoiding all types of alcohol and marijuana throughout your whole pregnancy or while you are trying to get pregnant is the best way to prevent complications.
Sometimes it hard to know what sources of information are trustworthy. The information is confusing or inconsistent and everyone has an opinion. It’s important to talk to your healthcare provider early about alcohol and marijuana use before, during, and after your pregnancy.

Because the use of alcohol, tobacco and marijuana is so widespread, many people do not realize it is harmful during pregnancy. Reducing any amount helps. Today is For Me. is a public awareness campaign that reaches out to people, who could become pregnant, in order to increase knowledge of harmful substances like alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana and offer access to evidence-based resources.
