No uncooked fish or meat while you are pregnant, please.

We worry about parasite infections.

It’s ok to eat the cooked sushi (e.g., eel, California roll). Meats should be cooked until the juices are clear to ensure that no bacteria are present. Prosciutto and smoked salmon are also considered cooked since they are cured (smoked). Ceviche is considered to be cooked by the acidity of the lime or lemon juice.
