Q:

can my wife eat prawns during pregnancy



Aparna Kunde Kowli

I'm not an expert but I'm a seafood lover and have relished prawns all my life. However my ObGyn advised me to be careful for first 3 months so I didn't have any. After that I had a lot. So unless your wife has any aversion, nausea or allergy towards prawns or shelled seafood, I don't see why she shouldn't have them.

Akanksha

Eating seafood is generally not advised if it has high mercury content for pregnant ladies. However my ObGyn had told me to take care but if I really wanted to have something, I could have it provided I choose my meals wisely. I second Aparna, didn't have prawns for the first trimester, after that I am relishing seafood as and when I want to. However, please avoid seafood with high mercury content.
