Eat Green Mussels After Giving Birth.?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, is it possible to eat green mussels after giving birth.
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Pregnancy and post pregnancy are important periods for both mother and child. The postnatal period is important for the recovery of the mother after childbirth and the provision of early nutrition to the baby through breast milk. Seafood or seafood is a good source of nutrition and is needed by the mother during recovery, the content of protein, iron, zinc, omega-3 is good component for the recovery period of the mother.
It should be noted in the consumption of seafood, especially green mussels is the content of mercury contained in the shells. The content of mercury consumed can cause developmental disorders of the brain, nervous system, and infant development. The mercury content can be transmitted to children through breast milk. So the mother needs to be careful in consuming seafood.
There are studies that examine the effect of seafood on brain development and growth and development of children, but have not found a permanent recommendation about the type of seafood that needs to be consumed, a safe amount for each type of seafood (fish, shellfish, and others). (1) It is important to remember not to consume seafood, especially raw shellfish, other than mercury content, this aims to avoid food poisoning. To eat green mussels not found contraindicated during the cooking process is done thoroughly and cleanly, it is better if you really want to consume these shells do the selection of ingredients themselves, cooked yourself at home to ensure the cooking process of the shells.
