Serious effects food poisoning in your Pregnancy
Posted in 2017

Listeriosis is a kind of food poisoning caused by Listeria bacteria. During pregnancy, you can pass the bacteria to your baby. This can cause problems, including:
  • Miscarriage. This is when a baby dies in the womb before 20 weeks of pregnancy.  
  • Stillbirth. This is when a baby dies in the womb after 20 weeks of pregnancy. 
  • Preterm labor and premature birth. These are labor and birth that happen too early, before 37 weeks of pregnancy. Babies born prematurely may have health problems and birth and later in life. 
  • Low birthweight. This is when a baby is born weighing less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces. 
  • Life-threatening infections in your baby, including bacteria in the blood (called bacteremia) and meningitis. Meningitis is an infection that causes swelling in the brain and spinal cord. Infected babies may have health problems after birth, including seizures, blindness and problems with the brain, heart and kidneys.
Listeria may be in the soil, water, on animals and in animal waste. The most common cause of listeriosis is eating food with Listeria in it. Foods that are most likely to have Listeria include:
  • Unpasteurized milk and foods made with it. If milk is pasteurized, it’s been heated to kill germs. Look for the word “pasteurized” on the label.
  • Soft cheeses, like feta, Brie, Camembert, Roquefort and Mexican-style cheeses, like queso fresco, queso blanco, Panela and Asadero
  • Deli meat, hot dogs, juice from hot dogs and dry sausages that are chilled or at room temperature
  • Unwashed fruits, vegetables or sprouts
  • Cold salads from delis or salad bars 
  • Refrigerated patés or meat spreads (Canned meat spreads are safe.) 
  • Refrigerated smoked seafood, including nova-style, lox, kippered, smoked and jerky

Food poisoning in a pregnant woman can cause serious problems for both her and her baby. Vomiting and diarrhea can cause your body to lose too much water and can disrupt your body’s chemical balance. To prevent food poisoning, follow these general guidelines:
Wash food. Rinse all raw produce thoroughly under running tap water before eating, cutting, or cooking.
Keep your kitchen clean. Wash your hands, knives, countertops, and cutting boards after handling and preparing uncooked foods.
Avoid all raw and undercooked seafood, eggs, and meat. Do not eat sushi made with raw fish (cooked sushi is safe). Food such as beef, pork, or poultry should be cooked to a safe internal temperature.
Pesticides and fertilizers are using in cultivation, vegetable growing etc....These are contained some poisonous chemicals which may harm U...Please wash two to three times than cook...

My advise
1...  Food poisoning happens when you eat or drink something with harmful bacteria (germs) in it. 
2...  Normal changes in your body during pregnancy may make you more likely to get food poisoning.
3...  During pregnancy, food poisoning can cause serious problems for you and your baby, including premature birth, miscarriage and stillbirth.
4..   Wash your hands before handling food and learn how to handle food safely. Don’t eat foods that commonly cause food poisoning. 
5.... If you think you have food poisoning, call your health care provider right away. 
6..   Eat fresh food and drink fresh water.
7..   Avoid plastic bottles for storing water.  Take glass bottles or copper bottles
