Description

Seafood can be a wonderful nutritional source for protein and iron which is vital in your baby's growth and development. Omega-3 fatty acids may also help promote your baby's brain development. However, some types of fish, like mackerel, contain very high levels of mercury that may damage your baby's developing brain and nervous system. It is recommended never to consume mackerel while pregnant. Updated: 10.22.14
