Protein-deficiency malnutrition and anemia are health concerns for pregnant women and meats are a great source of both protein and iron, which is better absorbed from animal sources than plant sources.”
If the pregnancy is normal couple can have sex as the baby in the womb is safe and protected by the uterus muscles and the amniotic fluid.

Sabharwal said, “Pregnant women need to be happy and instead of being prescriptive about what they should think and do to be happy, we must urge them to do things they enjoy and strongly advise the family be too supportive.” Approximately, 44,000 women die because of problems related to pregnancy every year in India.
