Too many misconceptions about the foods we eat whiles pregnant in Africa. The very foods that will nourish the pregnant woman and her unborn baby have so many superstitions around them. Sadly they are also foods that are cheap and available to the woman. Its time for these beliefs to be done away with since most women living in communities where some of these believes are upheld suffer the consequences. Including snails, eggs, okro, mushrooms among others to the diet of a pregnant woman will improve their health status and not the reverse. Malnutrition will result in anemia and poor general health status……Tag a friend to help change some of these believes. Thanks
