Babies are born healthy

Children and young people who are born healthy and have a healthy start are more likely to be physically, mentally and emotionally healthy as they grow up and to enjoy good health outcomes throughout their lives. Factors that may adversely affect longer-term health outcomes include smoking during pregnancy and babies born with a low birthweight. Protective factors inducive to good outcomes include early and regular antenatal care.
