Eating Prawns Lock Rss

I am 11 weeks pregnant andI am not eating very many things due to severe morning sickness. I went to the doctor and he told me to eat fresh prawns, i thought you were suppose to stay away from shell fish. Has anyone actually eaten prawns during pregnancy?
Hi Bec,
Prawns are fine (as long as they are fresh and cooked well). Try to avoid them from smorgasbord type places, but if you get them on the same day you eat them you should be fine.
I think the whole shellfish thing is meaning foods more like Crayfish, Lobster etc...
So as long as you know they are fresh you should be fine.
