Mother’s Health During Pregnancy Week 11

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 11

Now that your appetite is back, it's important to be careful about what you eat. Below you will find a list of foods to avoid during pregnancy.

    • Unpasteurized cheese and milk
    • Cold deli meats (cold cuts)
    • Raw or undercooked fish (including uncooked, smoked or pickled fish, or shellfish)
    • Shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and golden or white snapper (aka tilefish)
    • Refrigerated pate
    • Unwashed vegetables

Seafood is a good source of protein, and the primary source of omega-3 fatty acids, which may support the development of your baby's vision and brain. Luckily, there are many fish that are safe to eat during pregnancy. Some examples of “safe fish” include shrimp, crab, cod, clams, scallops, canned LIGHT tuna, canned salmon, pollock, and catfish.

You should only consume up to 12 ounces of commercially caught “safe fish” per week. But… this should include no more than six ounces of albacore (white) tuna or tuna steaks per week, because just like shark or king mackerel, their mercury content is too high and could harm your child's developing brain.
