Salmon during pregnancy
Can I eat Salmon during pregnancy? Yes. If it's cooked.
In general fish contain vital nutrients including omega 3 fatty acids, protein, vitamins, and minerals such as iron. The problem is with fish with high mercury rate (salmon is not the case). Is you want your salmon as raw fish it may contain small parasitic worms, such as anisakis. Cooking the fish usually destroys the worm. If you eat raw or undercooked salmon which may contain these worms then it can cause health problems which can happen to anyone, not just pregnant women.
Infection with these worms results in a condition known as anisakidosis (formerly known as anisakiasis or anisakiasis). you can read about the symptoms here.
