8 Most Common Pregnancy Myths DEBUNKED
Myth 1: Sushi is banned while pregnant
While it’s generally true that you should stay away from raw or uncooked seafood (and meat) of any kind during pregnancy, not all sushi is made the same. It’s also better to keep your consumption of fish high in mercury (e.g. shark, tilefish, mackerel, tuna) at a minimum. Nevertheless, you can still enjoy a variety of sushi that is prepared with cooked fish and vegetables as well, and even the types of fish we’ve mentioned above, when eaten in very small quantities, should be fine.
