Toxoplasmosis & Pregnancy

Toxoplasmosis is another of the conditions that pregnant women should take care of. For this, Dr. Ellen Schwartzbard, Obstetrician & Gynecologist at Baptist Health South Florida, recommends, if the patient has a cat as a pet and she does not clean its little box, she needs to stay away from its feces.

Also, the specialist states that using gloves to clean, not eating undercooked or rare meat and proper hand-washing can help to prevent Toxoplasmosis during pregnancy.
