Eating in Italy While Pregnant

sw79 | May 8, 2013 07:18 AM

I will be in Italy (Alba, Cinque Terre, and Pisa) at the end of May and will be 10 - 11 weeks pregnant. Here in the US, we are cautioned against eating unpasteurized cheeses and deli meats. Does the same thing hold true for Italian women? I want to eat as well as possible but also be safe. What specifically should I avoid, other than dishes with raw fish and raw eggs, and moldy cheeses? I would love to enjoy prosciutto and similar meats but want to be on the safe side. Are there any pregnancy-safe cheeses that you would recommend?
