As far as i know, all fish is safe to eat when pregnant, but what they tell u to avoid, is the shell fish, as theres a small chance bubs could have an allergic reaction or something??
(same with peanuts and stuff like that)
And not to eat the fish raw (as raw meat can cause food poisoning).
sorry i cant be more help to you than that, but yeah, there shouldnt be any reason to avoid eating fish smile
best of luck!!
A big no is smoked fish or just smoked food in general. It slows oxygen flow in the blood and is very bad for baby.
Good luck! =)
The general rule is: "...Pregnant women, women planning pregnancy and young children should limit their intake of shark (flake), broadbill, marlin and swordfish to no more than one serve per fortnight with no other fish to be consumed during that fortnight. For orange roughy (also sold as sea perch) and catfish, the advice is to consume no more than one serve per week, with no other fish being consumed during that week... "
Fish in moderation (2-3 times per week) is of course good for you, but it's the type of fish and inparticular the mercury levels that is the concern. Too much mercury can cause problems for you & bub, so just be conscience of how much & what you are eating.
Hope this helps.
Anyway just wanted to share this with everyone. Fish is good for you anyway so just be mindful of the ones that are high in mercury.
Take care, Deesdale
