Consumption Of Ginger Milk Mixed With Areca Nut Plants For Young Pregnant Women?
I want to ask ?? I’m 6 weeks pregnant, can I have ginger milk mixed with betel nut?
Thank you for the question.
When you are pregnant, whatever your mother consumes is a concern because it can affect the health of the mother and fetus. Mothers need to fulfill their nutritional and fluid needs to maintain the health and growth and development of the fetus, but not all types of food or drinks can be consumed freely like before pregnancy, and unfortunately not all home foods or drinks have sufficient information related to their safety to the health of the mother and fetus .
But in general, most home-made food and drinks can be consumed safely within reasonable limits, in the sense of not being consumed too routinely and excessively, and consumed as needed. As in your 6-week pregnancy, where the first trimester of pregnancy the mother usually experiences symptoms of nausea-vomiting that is more severe than other trimesters, then the mother can do tips to reduce the feeling of nausea, vomiting, such as by drinking warm ginger milk mixed with areca nut. However, mothers should not consume it too routinely, because there are no studies that prove the safety of ginger milk with areca nut.
In addition, the following foods / drinks that should be avoided when pregnant:
Mercury-rich fish, such as tuna, mackerel, or shark.
Raw or undercooked fish.
Raw, undercooked or processed meat.
Caffeine-containing drinks such as coffee.
Raw germinated vegetables like bean sprouts.
Unwashed vegetables / fruit.
Milk and non-pasteurized milk or juice products.
Hopefully this information helps and hopefully mothers and fetuses are always healthy.
