Congratulations on Your Baby!
Hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can alter a person’s immune system, leading them to be more susceptible to food poisoning.
Food poisoning can happen after a person eats or drinks something containing bacteria, a virus, parasites, or other contaminants.
Food poisoning in pregnancy can result in harm to the baby. However, there are many ways to prevent it.
Because your baby depends on you for everything he/she needs, it is very important that you be careful about what you eat and how you store, prepare and cook your food.
Food poisoning or morning sickness?
It can be tricky to know when food poisoning is to blame for your sickness. Sometimes, germs from food can make you sick right away. Other times, they hang around in your body for days or even weeks before you have symptoms. Morning sickness also presents similar symptoms to food poisoning.
