Hi, my partner has really bad health anxiety, she knows this & admits she needs help. She 16wks pregnant & seems to be getting worse. She's worried incase food isn't cooked properly etc. I do tell her shes ok nothing is wrong with her but she dont seem to want to listen to me.

Planning meals and knowing the food is well within the best before dates and using a thermometer to check food is cooked correctly may help with anxiety. Using the NHS start for life website also gives information on what foods are safe to eat in pregnancy.

It can be really helpful to discuss concerns with your midwife. They may be able to offer some reassuring advice about managing these concerns.
