If you know you have allergies, consult your doctor before you become pregnant or at the start of your pregnancy. He will adjust your treatment, as some are contraindicated during pregnancy. He will also suggest that you be followed more regularly during the 9 months, because allergies during your pregnancy may be more virulent, identical, or on the contrary, attenuated.
Allergy and pregnancy: little danger, but be prepared and consult
The allergy does not harm the baby, but having an asthma attack, for example, even a slight one, is never harmless. That is why:
If you discover that you are allergic during your pregnancy, consult urgently;
if you suspect an allergy and want a child: have an allergy assessment with an allergist.
Pregnant woman with allergies:
As with all allergies, it is necessary to identify the triggers, to be able to follow the hygienic and dietetic rules adapted to your case. During pregnancy, you will take extra care to rule out the allergen in question.
Things to avoid
Many allergens are part of our daily life.
For example, avoid:
Develop a healthy environment
To limit allergies, it is recommended to:
Allergy in the baby
You will not prevent your baby from having an allergy that you do not have: for example, there is no point in chasing away dust mites if you are not allergic to dust.
If you are allergic, the baby has a 30% risk of being allergic;
if the baby's father is also allergic, the risk of allergies increases to 60% or even more if the allergy is the same in both parents.
Smoking or being second-hand smoke increases your baby's risk of being allergic by 10.
During our recent visit to Israel, we really struggled to find food for our son who has anaphylactic level allergies to egg and sesame. We approached both restaurants and hotels and were told they were unable or unwilling to take responsibility for preparing his food.
After learning about Dr. Eliana on-line, we contacted her in the hopes that she could provide a ‘normal’ restaurant experience for our family.
Both she and Shani were meticulous in their preparations with the restaurants to ensure that our son had a wonderful and safe experience.
We truly appreciate their efforts to take care of our son, and to provide us with a lovely vacation experience.

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing gift you have given us over this Pesach- the gift of having you with us!!!!
We have NEVER felt more comfortable, calm, and at ease than we did these past 10 days. Your warmth, professionalism, kindness, and care shown through in all that you did.
My children are so grateful that they were able to be with you this Pesach. You made sure that they were so well looked after and they felt so at ease and comfortable with you! You were so amazing and approachable to them! And they LOVED all the food you so amazingly prepared (supervised allergy-free food preparation, managed menus) for them!
It’s very difficult for us to trust people when it comes to our kids and allergies. You magically were able to take away ALL of our anxieties, and nervousness (and we don’t give that away so easily!!)
We can never fully thank you enough. We truly feel that you instantly became part of our family and we look forward to G-d willing being able to be with you and plan amazing trips with you many many many more times!!!!
Thank you and may Hashem bless you for the work you do. My son Jacob said your allergy card has been very helpful. I am so grateful- beyond words.

"Food Allergy Concierge assisted us with a very helpful, detailed customized allergy card in Hebrew. The Allergy card was extremely helpful for multiple allergies and allowed us to eat safely in several eateries and hotels. Highly recommended.”

My family ordered a week's worth of food from Food Allergy Concierge during the most recent lockdown. Having the food on hand, and knowing that it was safe for everyone in the family to eat, helped turn the lockdown into a stay-cation! We were still able to take a break from cooking and worrying, and we look forward to using FAC's services again in the future.
We are so lucky we found this company to help us while our son was traveling. They provided allergy-safe baked goods and delivered them to his hotel so he could have bread and pastries on his month-long Israel trip. It was very easy ordering and communicating his needs. I would definitely use the food allergy concierge again the next time he travels to Israel.
