When you microwave food, transfer it to containers made of ceramic or glass rather than plastic. Some plastic containers and plastic wraps contain chemicals (dioxins) that can seep into your food during the microwave process. These chemicals should not be consumed during or after pregnancy.
Also, remember that a microwave can heat foods unevenly. Avoid overheating beverages, stir foods before consumption and carefully test the temperature before eating.
