Meat (were) during your pregnancy; what is / is not possible?

  1. When you are pregnant, you want to do everything you can to make sure the baby in your womb can grow properly and try to avoid the wrong foods. For example, there are some dos and don'ts for pregnant women when it comes to eating and preparing meat.

Why pay attention to certain types and preparations of meat?

  1. There are two types of contamination that can occur on meat, making it dangerous for pregnant women.

Listeria

  1. First, the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes. This bacteria is transferred from animals to humans. Unlike other bacteria, the listeria bacteria grows well at refrigerator temperature. We think we are safe by keeping it refrigerated, but this bacteria is outsmarting us. Listeria is especially dangerous during pregnancy. Most people don't get sick after eating foods contaminated with listeria. But healthy pregnant women are more susceptible and more likely to become life-threateningly ill. The flu-like symptoms associated with listeria can be life-threatening meningitis (infection of the membranes that cover the brain, with symptoms such as severe headache and stiff neck) and blood infection. Contact your doctor or midwife if you are pregnant and notice these symptoms. Listeria can reach the baby through the placenta or through the birth canal. It can cause miscarriage, premature delivery or even death of the baby.

Toxoplasmosis

  1. And secondly, the parasite toxoplasma gondii. This parasite causes the disease toxoplasmosis. The annoying thing is that you cannot see, smell or taste the parasite, so infected meat cannot be distinguished. In pregnant women, the parasite is extra dangerous, because in the first months after infection it can even lead to death for the baby. If you are a little further along in your pregnancy, it can cause damage to the baby's eyes and brain.
