Good evening, I want to ask what is the danger of drinking pure cow’s milk without boiling it first for pregnant women? Because I have already drunk 2 large glasses of pure cow’s milk without boiling it first … And what should I do after I already drink it to keep my baby healthy .. Thanks

Hello Sarifatmala, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Women who are pregnant are strongly discouraged from drinking milk that has not been pasteurized first. Pure cow's milk that has not been pasteurized has the potential to cause infections such as Salmonella, E. Coli, and Listeria. All of these infections will usually give symptoms such as:

diarrhea
fever
nausea and vomiting
abdominal pain
headache
muscle and joint pain
sometimes it can cause bloody diarrhea too


It is quite dangerous if you have a Listeria infection. This infection can cause miscarriage, premature delivery, stillbirths in the womb, and uterine infections. Since you are already drinking unpasteurized milk, there is nothing you can do to prevent infection. But at this time you should pay attention to the presence or absence of the symptoms as mentioned above. If you see these symptoms, immediately go to the obstetrician for therapy according to the cause. Performing appropriate and adequate treatment can prevent complications for both the mother and the baby in her womb.


Henceforth, you have to be careful with the food you eat. The following is a list of foods and drinks that should be avoided during pregnancy:

Unpasteurized milk and dairy products (such as cheese)
Alcohol
Caffeinated drinks (small amounts are still allowed)
Uncooked or undercooked eggs
Undercooked meat
Fish, especially deep sea fish such as tuna, shark, swordfish, mackerel. Freshwater and shallow sea fish are still allowed, but the numbers should still be limited to 2 times per week. Fish should also be cooked thoroughly.
Liver and organs in other animals
Raw vegetables


Here is an article about foods to avoid in pregnancy and healthy foods for pregnant women that you can read

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
