New Mums

We are committed to offer information that will help Mum prepare for her newborn's arrival and future baby care.

General pregnancy advice

While you're pregnant, you are in a high-risk group for food-borne illness. This means there are foods you'll have to give up or cut down on during pregnancy, because they could harm your baby.

Third trimester advice

Your third trimester is a busy time. You're getting ready to welcome a new baby into your home, while continuing to try and keep yourself healthy.

Once the baby arrives

Although ‘superbugs‘ (germs that are resistant to antibiotics), viruses and bacteria are present in many environments, you are more vulnerable whilst in hospital.

Life stages advice

It's important to keep your baby's safety in mind at all times, both at home and when visiting.

If you are expecting a baby, practising good hygiene to create a healthy home environment is essential in protecting yourself and your family from germs. For mums-to-be and their unborn babies, reducing the risk of exposure to certain germs and infections can help prevent harmful complications.

Good home hygiene not only helps to protect your baby during the first few vulnerable months of their life while their immune system is still developing, it helps promote the health and wellbeing of your whole family too. Keeping your home clean and developing good, effective hygiene practices does not need a huge effort but it can make a big difference.

With over 70 years of experience in hygiene, Dettol is committed to helping families understand how they can flourish in a clean and healthy environment – keeping your home clean is part of a holistic health solution which will benefit your entire family.
