Fish during pregnancy: what is / is not possible

  1. If you like fish and you know by now that you are pregnant, you don't have to abstain. Many types of fish are still safe to eat, but some you should avoid or eat less. Because the disadvantages associated with those fish are greater than the advantages. In general, however, it can be said that the benefits of fish actually make you want to keep eating the right ones during your pregnancy.

Can you eat fish?

  1. Yes, you can eat fish in moderation. Fish is an excellent source of nutritional value, but it can also contain pollution. Something that nowadays gets a lot of negative attention in the press. The chemicals can be methyl, mercury, dioxins, PCBs and pesticides. When eaten in excess, which is more common than usual in popular seafood, it can lead to developmental delays in the child. Animal experiments have shown that large amounts of the pollution can lead to reproductive problems (impotence), birth defects and a number of other problems. In humans, it is known that eating fish from contaminated water can cause miscarriages, premature births and physical and developmental delays in babies in the womb.

Advantages and disadvantages

  1. Pollution Fortunately, only some fish are infected with harmful amounts of pollution. How many chemicals a fish absorbs depends on a number of factors: type of fish, age of the fish and how polluted the water in which they live is. Despite this, there is no reason to cut seafood off the menu, but it is advisable to avoid large predatory fish. These fish feed on other infected fish, so they contain the largest volumes of pollution. This mainly concerns the following fish: shark, king mackerel, swordfish and tile fish (family of the bass family).

Omega-3

  1. Omega-3 is thought to stimulate the baby's brain development. Salmon and farmed rainbow trout contain many of these omega-3s and few contaminants.

Instructions for eating and preparing

  1. But since almost all seafood and fish are contaminated to some degree, it is best to vary your diet. Do not eat fish more than three times a week and make sure they are different types. Remove the skin (where many contaminants are trapped) and fry the fish well (this will also reduce some of the chemicals contained in the fish).

America

  1. The Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority in America has a limit of 170 grams of heavy tuna and 340 grams of light tuna. But according to the Centers of Disease Prevention, nearly one in six women has a level of mercury in the blood that could be harmful to the baby. This means that 630,000 babies are at risk of developmental delays from mercury exposure every year. Although the topic is controversial and much research remains to be done, there is evidence that the statement that mercury in fish is a real danger to people who eat (too) much of it (including their babies) is true.
