AVOID OVERHEATING AND TREAT FEVER PROMPTLY

During pregnancy, a woman should avoid overheating and treat fever promptly.
Overheating can increase a woman’s chance of having a baby with a neural tube defect.

It can be caused by a fever or exposure to excessive temperatures (like getting in a hot tub) that increases a woman’s core temperature.

Protecting against infections, treating fever promptly, limiting environmental exposures known to increase core body temperatures (like getting in a hot tub), and consuming 400 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid every day can help reduce the chance of having a baby born with a neural tube defect.
