Food Safety During Pregnancy

A safe and healthy diet during pregnancy is vital to ensure normal development of your baby. You’ve probably heard that you shouldn’t eat raw fish and soft cheeses, but there’s more to making safe choices than simply steering clear of one or two foods.

As a general rule, it’s recommended that you avoid raw, unpasteurised or pre-prepared foods while you’re pregnant. These types of foods can carry potentially harmful bacteria, such as listeria and salmonella, which can cause premature labour, stillbirth or miscarriage.

If this sounds daunting or you need some help with your diet, please feel free to book a consultation with Chris or call his rooms for advice on (03) 9418 8299.
