can pregnant women eat shrimp Answer: No, it is not advisable for pregnant women to eat shrimp. There are too many risks involved with seafood - one common risk is that the food could be contaminated with bacteria.

High risk? No. Somewhat increased, but still low risk? Yes, perhaps. Pregnancy is not a disease; it is a natural part of life for most women.

Yes, unless you get pregnant. For nonsmoking women, and even for women who smoke and are under 35, there is more risk of blood clot with pregnancy than on the pill.

Pregnancy is an extremely higher risk for every insurance. This is so, because there maybe a lot of complications during the pregnancy. So it is harder or just impossible for pregnant women to get an insurance.

Pregnant women are advised to look after their health more carefully to protect the unborn child. This is about the possible risk of food poisoning. Even if you are not pregnant (or male) it's still good advice.

Answer: There are many different types of flu, some more serious than others. Most are not typically fatal to pregnant women. Pregnant women do have extra strains on their immune systems which can make it more difficult for them to fight off some types of infectious diseases. This is one reason that vaccinations are encouraged to prevent the flu in pregnant women. However, with proper care to prevent secondary bacterial infections and to control fever and dehydration, most seasonal flu does not impact pregnant women much more than non-pregnant women. That said, during the pandemic of 2009, the A-H1n1/09 influenza has shown that pregnant women are more at risk for contracting the flu and for complications and fatality than other demographic groups. Obstetricians are encouraging priority vaccinations for their pregnant or soon-to-be-pregnant patients.
