Question: Can I eat fish or prawns
Answer: Hello dear. You should limit how much you eat of these fish to two portions a week. Shark, swordfish and marlin contain much higher levels of mercury, so you shouldn't eat these fish at all while you're pregnant. Instead, you can eat as much as you want of any of the following salmon, tilapia, shrimp, tuna (canned-light), cod, and catfish. You can also confirm this with your doctor before consuming. Prawns are in the low mercury category, so having them ones a while in moderation would be fine. However confirm with your doctor too. Take care.
