Mosquitoes are the biggest killer on the planet – Fact! These tiny creatures cause death, illness and misery all over the world, and it doesn’t look like there will be any rest from their deadly ways any time soon. With the latest concern surrounding the mosquito borne disease, the zika virus and pregnant women, what can expectant mothers do to prevent their unborn children becoming the next victims?

5 Things Pregnant Women Can Do To Prevent Zika (Mosquito-borne diseases)

Zika is a virus that is spread through the bite of a mosquito. Its symptoms commonly include fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis. However, in May 2015, an outbreak of this virus in Brazil led to reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome and effects on pregnancy. These include birth defects and poor pregnancy outcomes.

We can’t stress enough how important it is to stay safe and to make sure your mosquito control is up to date. A state of emergency in Brazil has been announced and we have already had reported cases of Zika, here in the US.
