Congratulations! You’ve just confirmed what you’ve already suspected for weeks—you’re pregnant! Now that you know you’re about to become a mom, you’ll need to make a few changes in your lifestyle, starting with your diet. After all, what you consume today has a direct effect on your baby’s future.

Anything that is unpasteurized, raw, or rare, for example, is a definite no-no, especially since it may contain bacteria and parasites that could harm your baby. Anything that contains alcohol is also off the table.

P.S. Before making any changes to your diet, make sure to bring it up with your doctor first!
