Not all fish is bad for you during your pregnancy.

It’s often hard to separate the myths from the facts when it comes to what you can and can’t eat during pregnancy.

Truth:

Fish provides high-quality protein, is low in fat, and contains Omega-3 fatty acids, and other essential nutrients.

The Omega-3 fatty acids in fish play a role in your baby's brain and eye development.

Certain fish that contains high levels of mercury can be harmful to your baby, but during your pregnancy you can eat fish and seafood such as hake, sardines, salmon, canned tuna and trout, which are low in mercury.
