Is it Safe to drink regular fat-free milk during pregnancy?

Patient: Is it safe to drink regular fat-free milk during pregnancy or must I switch to organic milk?

 

 

Doctor: You may continue having low fat milk during pregnancy as long as it is pasteurised milk. Unpasteurised dairy products ma y lead to foodborne illnesses. Whole milk contains saturated fat which may not be good for your heart. I think you have made a healthy choice for life, including pregnancy.
