The Seven Pregnancy sins

One of the most confusing things when you are pregnant is what you can and can’t eat or do. I found this article on the Junior magazine web site which looks at the most common things that should be avoided and actually looks at the real risk to both mum and baby. What is quite amusing to me as a pastor is how they have used a “sin rating” from 1-5 for how harmful something is, 5 being the guiltiest! Here is the summary

Pregnancy sin Pregnancy Sin rating
Cigarettes 4-5
Alcohol 1-2 units a day 1- 2, heavy drinking 5
Caffiene moderate consumption 1
Soft and blue cheese 4
Bagged salad,fruit and veg 3
Oily fish 2
Raw or partially cooked eggs 1-2
