Can Pregnant Women Affected By The Torch Virus Drink Goat’s Milk?
Is it permissible, pregnant women affected by torch virus to drink pure goat milk mixed with honey?
Thank you for the question.
TORCH (Toxoplasmosis, other, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes) infections during pregnancy need special attention and early treatment. Because, not infrequently, this infection can make pregnant women prone to miscarriage, premature labor, to abnormalities in the fetus, such as fetal defects, low birth weight, cognitive disorders, heart disorders, until fetal death in the womb.
Pregnant women with TORCH infections need to see a gynecologist directly so that the condition can be treated properly according to the type of disease, severity, and clinical symptoms that arise. In this way, the potential negative impact on the fetus can be minimized.
Pregnant women, whether they suffer from TORCH infection or not, are not advised to consume raw raw milk and have not been pasteurized, whether it's goat's milk, cow's milk, or other types of milk. This raw and unpasteurized milk is very high in potential to contain harmful microorganisms, such as Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, and so on. This microorganism, if it enters and infects digestion, can make you experience diarrhea, fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, bloody bowel movements, and various other complaints that are certainly not good impact on the fetus in your womb. Honey consumption, though not prohibited during pregnancy, if done excessively and if it contains a lot of artificial sweeteners, also risks causing your fetus to grow too large to complicate labor. In addition to the various risks above, the consumption of pure goat milk mixed with honey has also not been proven to cure TORCH infections during pregnancy. Therefore, be more careful in choosing the type of food and drink during pregnancy huh ..
I hope this helps.
