Is It Okay To Eat Bacon For 7 Weeks Pregnant?
, I want to ask? Is it true that pregnant women should not eat smoked meat? Today I eat the smoked meat contained in the contents of the cireng. So, if smoked meat really worsens pregnancy or causes the fetus to not develop or die in the womb, please advise me to anticipate how to maintain the fetus in what ways if you already eat smoked meat? Thanks before.
Hello Anggun, Thank you for the question.
A woman who is pregnant should be more careful about the food and drink that is consumed because it can interfere with the health and development of the fetus. Consumption of smoked meat should be avoided because smoked meat can still contain Listeria and E.coli bacteria which can cause intestinal infections in pregnant women. The presence of infection in pregnancy can lead to miscarriage and premature birth. Apart from that some of the foods and drinks that you should avoid are raw meat, raw seafood, raw eggs, unpasteruised milk, baked goods, caffeinated drinks, alcoholic beverages.
If you are already consuming these foods, what you can do now is to maintain general pregnancy health by consuming nutritious foods (which contain carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals), consuming water, exercising regularly, and have your pregnancy checked regularly at your gynecologist.
