Pregnancy Infections ... Zika Virus
Posted in May 2018

Zika is spread by the Aedes mosquito which bites during the day. It can also be spread by unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected partner. Although Zika has been spread locally in both Florida and southern Texas, the preponderance of the current Zika outbreak is occurring in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.
Zika virus that is passed from the mother to fetus can cause severe birth defects, including microcephaly and brain abnormalities.  The risk of these birth defects is 20 times higher in women with Zika virus.
Although work on a Zika vaccine is currently being undertaken, there is no cure or specific treatment for Zika virus. Pregnant women are advised to use bug repellant, avoid travel to areas where Zika is spread, and avoid unprotected intercourse with a partner who could be infected with the virus.

My advise
1..  Take Healthy food and follow healthy habits to avoid infections during your pregnancy.
2... Drink sufficient water
3... Avoid mosquitos during your Pregnancy
