I love having clams. Can I continue having them during pregnancy?

Yes, it is safe to eat clams during pregnancy. The FDA considers it to be one of the ‘best choices’ as it comes under the list of fish that are low in mercury. Plus, it is rich in vitamin B12, a nutrient essential for the proper functioning of your nervous system. When combined with folic acid, vitamin B12 helps prevent a serious spinal cord birth defect, spina bifida.
