Food and Nutrition

You may have already heard some of the foods to be mindful of while pregnant. For example, it’s important to be cautious about consuming raw fish during pregnancy. C’mon, giving up sushi while living in Vancouver? You might be wondering, why is this? Raw fish can contain harmful bacteria and parasites that can be dangerous to both you and your developing baby. If you’re a sushi lover, there’s a workaround: you can still enjoy cooked varieties, such as California rolls or vegetable rolls. Be sure to talk to your maternity provider about any specific concerns you may have about consuming sushi during your pregnancy.
