8... Listeria infection in pregnancy
Listeria infection in pregnancy often goes unnoticed due to lack of awareness. For the study, four pregnant rhesus macaques were fed doses of the listeria comparable to what one might encounter in contaminated food. According to the results published in the journal mBio, none of the monkeys showed obvious signs of infection before their pregnancies came to abrupt ends. But the tissue samples taken after each monkey experienced intrauterine fetal death, the researchers concluded that listeria had invaded the placenta (an organ which connects fetus to the uterine wall to allow nutrient uptake) as well as the endometrium, the lining of the uterus. Researchers believe that the inflammation caused by the maternal immune response to the fast-moving listeria also affects the placenta, keeping it from protecting the fetus. The results suggest that listeria may be the reason for miscarriages that usually go without diagnosed cause. Lead author of the study, a graduate student Bryce Wolfe, University of Wisconsin-Madison said, "There are effective antibiotics available. It is treatable." Wolfe added “The issue is that because it's asymptomatic, the fetus may be infected by the time anyone realizes the mother was infected."

The study concludes that pregnant women or expecting mothers avoid any food intake which contains listeria, as it may lead to miscarriage of the fetus and other pregnancy related problems. 
9...  Avoid Plastic bottle water
Regular drinking water with Plastic Bottle should be avoided before and after pregnancy.  By drinking Glass is advised.

10..   Avoid Drinking Alcohol  
Whether or not you should be drinking during pregnancy is a long standing debate. Some experts say that alcohol can affect the health and behavior of the newborn negatively while other believe that it is alright to have an occasional drink. We don't know for sure, but what we know is that one in three pregnant women in Britain drinks alcohol .

According to a new survey that was conducted around 11 European countries and included 7,905 women, Britain (28.5 per cent) scored highest in alcohol consumption during pregnancy, followed by Russia (26.5 per cent) and Switzerland (20.9 per cent). The survey was conducted in countries such as Croatia, Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Sweden, Switzerland and Britain.
Out of all the survey participants, 53 per cent were pregnant and 46 per cent were new mothers (with a child up to one-year-old). The paper appeared in the journal Women and Birth.

The general word on the topic is that there is no amount of alcohol that is safe for consumption during pregnancy. Even a light drinking can affect your pregnancy and the foetus adversely. If you drink, your baby drinks and it can cause severe defects like cognitive impairments and behavioral issues in the newborn. It may even lead to premature delivery and increases the risk of miscarriage. Given these effects, European health organisations have issues several advisories to abstain from alcohol during pregnancy yet the results are a bit disappointing.
