Foodborne illness is a serious health risk for pregnant women and their unborn babies. During pregnancy, changes in hormones can cause a woman's immune system to become suppressed, so that it could be harder to fight off infections. Some food-borne illnesses can cause a woman to have pregnancy complications such as a miscarriage, stillbirth or serious health problems for the baby after birth. Along with nutrition concerns, a growing topic of importance is food safety during pregnancy. Before You're Pregnant: Protect your unborn baby from methylmercury and toxoplasmosis. And take folic acid supplements! While You’re Pregnant: Protect your unborn baby from methylmercury, toxoplasmosis, listeria, and other foodborne illness.
