Can Pregnant Women Consume Raw Free-range Chicken Egg Yolk?
Good evening doctor … r nI want to ask, can a pregnant woman with a gestational age of 8 months consume raw free-range chicken egg yolk once a week. R nbecause I live with my mother-in-law and she tells me to drink 1x a week Javanese ingredients (dlingo, bengle, coconut oil and yellow chicken eggs (raw)). Is this herb is good for the fetus. R nIn Java still use / believe it will make the baby born clean, healthy, and easy to be born (this is according to their experience).
Hi Khoerunnisa .. Thank you for the question.
In pregnant women, there are many things that need to be considered, one of which is the adequate nutrition of the mother and fetus. Because it affects the growth and development of the fetus, it is important to remember that everything the mother consumes will be absorbed by the fetus. Foods that are best avoided by pregnant women, including:
Raw or undercooked eggs, raw eggs are at risk of containing salmonella bacteria which can cause typhoid infection
Raw or undercooked meat because of the risk of containing the Toxoplasma virus
Fish that contain mercury, for example tuna
Milk and other unpasteurized dairy products
Many beliefs in society are still held and practiced, but once you know them you need to avoid consuming raw or undercooked foods. Foods that are good for pregnant women include: protein sources such as meat, eggs, tofu, fish, yogurt; vegetable fats such as seeds and nuts as long as they are not consumed in excess; milk; vitamin; iron; folic acid; carbohydrate. It's a good idea to consult your obstetrician about food during pregnancy because everyone's food is different according to activity, age, weight, gestational age.
