During pregnancy there are many things an expectant mother can do to ensure the best possible health for herself and her unborn child. Some of the more obvious things include getting plenty of fluids, taking prenatal vitamins and consuming healthful foods.

Specifically, a food borne illness called listeriosis, caused by the bacterium, Listeria monocytogenes.

The lines on the sailboats in the boatyard keen in the wind, cats meowing mournfully at some imagined wrong. The tide is low, the water nearly flat. In the not too distance, a shrimp boat's silhouette cuts the gray landscape with edges as sharp as a knife blade. It is not exactly too cold for a long walk, but I am ill-prepared; the coat is warm enough, the shoes sturdy enough, but without gloves or a scarf, my hands, my face, my ears will be gnawed raw in minutes.
