Question: I am 6 weeks pregnant Can I eat prawns

1 Answers
Answer: Almost all forms of seafood are best avoided during pregnancy. Seafood apart from being good source of protein fats and minerals, which are necessary for the normal growth of your fetus, they also come packed with harmful toxins. Water pollution has caused an increase in the accumulation of toxic chemicals in the marine life, which makes consumption of seafood more problematic than before. It is advisable to avoid consuming seafood served in restaurants during pregnancy. Since they are more likely to be undercooked and may not be prepared in the clean environments as at home.If you are sure that the prawns you’ve purchased are from a safe freshwater source, you can consume it occasionally after seeking the opinion of your healthcare provider.
