In brief: No RAW meat/fish

Besides raw meat/fish (n minimize processed meats/cold-cuts), you should be eating a healthy, well balanced diet, and regular exercises just like everyone else should.
You may need a bit more iron/calcium/folic acid which are provided in your prenatal vitamins. Consume about 500+ calories/day extra, to make milk for baby. Congrats on the new baby--a miracle of life. Good luck.
