Foods to Avoid During Pregnancy
Not only can smoking and alcohol harm your unborn baby, but certain food can as well. I am a major fan of seafood, so I was rather bummed when I learned that certain seafood can harm my child due to the high contents of mercury.
Below s a list of food(s) to avoid
Some fish in sushi
Seafood that contain low-contents (of mercury)
Atlantic and Pacific mackerel
Although the low-contents are safe, I avoided all forms of seafood during pregnancy.
There are other foods to avoid as well such as:
Raw meat and uncooked seafood
Soft cheeses (Brie, Camembert, Roquefort, Feta, and Gorgonzola for example)
Because they contain Listeria which can cross the placenta and cause the baby to have an infection.

I do love salmon though. Yum!
