Instead, try eating fish like tilapia, sardines, canned tuna, shrimp, and catfish. Though it would be best to limit these to just two to three servings per week.
While eating liver might sound like a good idea because of the iron content, it could actually be bad for your baby. Eating too much liver can cause higher levels of vitamin A in your baby, which can be harmful to them.
Though it is not safe to eat it often, having a serving once or twice a month at most would be fine. Just be sure to avoid eating a lot at one time. Also, check that the liver is cooked properly.
Herbal teas and caffeine
Herbal teas and caffeine should be avoided during pregnancy. This is because herbal teas can sometimes contain substances that affect your baby and pregnancy. In addition, some herbal teas may contain certain ingredients that are harmful such as traces of heavy metal and contaminants.
Another problem is that some herbal teas contain caffeine, and caffeine in general should be avoided during pregnancy. Too much caffeine can potentially harm the baby (i.e. preterm labor, low birth weight baby, stillbirth), so it would be best to either drink fewer caffeinated drinks or to just avoid them entirely to be safe.
Lastly, alcoholic drinks are a big no-no during your pregnancy. Alcohol can cause unborn babies to suffer from fetal alcohol syndrome, which can cause brain damage as well as developmental problems or delays.
Drinking alcohol also affects your judgment and motor skills, which means that you could accidentally hurt yourself and your baby if you get drunk.
