Q. Are there certain foods pregnant women shouldn't eat?

A. “They should avoid soft cheeses, such as Brie, feta and blue cheese, and deli meats unless they are heated until steaming. These foods can increase the risk for listeriosis—a foodborne illness that can be particularly worrisome for pregnant women.”


Please note that some goat cheeses are pasteurized, so they are safe to eat (it will say it on the label).
