Unborn Babies Are at Risk
- Foodborne bacteria crosses placenta
- Infects unborn baby
- Fetus can’t fight harmful bacteria
- Serious health problems
- Developmental delays
Foodborne bacteria can cross the placenta and infect your unborn baby. And, your unborn baby’s immune system is not developed enough to fight off harmful bacteria.
Your baby can suffer serious health problems, developmental delays, and in extreme cases — death.
