Fruits for pregnant ladies - March 25th 2020, 10:07 AM

Once, I read Pineapple and Papaya are not suitable for pregnant ladies, especially in their first three months. But, also I've heard fruits are essential.What is the truth?

As far as I'm aware, there is little evidence to suggest that pineapple or papaya are not suitable for pregnant ladies.

But you are correct that fruit is essential for healthy growth and development. There may be many 'myths' out there and it can be difficult to know what's true and what's not. It's usually best to consult with a doctor or midwife about what foods you can eat and what should be avoided. You can also check out advice for reputable websites, such as this list of foods to avoid and this article on a healthy diet in pregnancy, written by the National Health Service (UK based).

Pineapples This fruit contains acid in its composition, which can cause involuntary. That is why it is recommended to give up pineapple and pineapple juice in the first trimester of pregnancy when there is a high probability of a miscarriage.
Pregnant women can only eat ripe papaya. Unripe fruits contain special substances that stimulate the activity of smooth muscles of internal organs. With the use of unripe fruits, it is possible to increase the tone of the uterus and terminate the pregnancy prematurely. Expectant mother should not take risks and eat unripe papaya during pregnancy.
Health to you and your baby!

If pineapples are a common fruit in your country, then there is nothing wrong with that. Doctors often warn women to use exotic fruits with caution. Pineapple is not exotic for me personally)

You are absolutely right!

Should you avoid pineapple during pregnancy? - Article from Healthline.

As a rule, never take online "medical info" as Gospel. You should take advice first from your midwife or doctor. With so much fake news around presently, only your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the correct info.


Here are what I know you can take



Pineapple can be acidsic, but take advice on that one cuz I know pregnant women can have it, but I don't know whne.


Oranges for vitamin C and folate



Mangoes are rich in vitamins A and C. According to health stats, one cup of chopped mango provides 100% recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin C and more than a third of their RDA of vitamin A.


Banananas for potassium, vitamin C, B6. fiber


Grapes (redduns for anti-oxidents), vits C & K


Apples vitamins A and C, potassium


Berries



Pearsfor potassium and folate


Pomegranates can provide preggo women with viatmin K, calcium, fiber, protein and potassium for phosphors, fiber and vitamins A, C, and E.

This post was initially posted 9 ish months ago. So the responses may not be relevant to the OP now. However, ALWAYS bring these questions to your doctor. There are tons of reputable articles and studies. It is fantastic to inform yourself, but if you are unsure, you should contact your OB. I say this because every pregnancy is different, everyone's situation is different. A doctor will be able to advise you best according to you as their patient.

the main thing is not to eat something that you have not eaten before, or products that have allergic properties. and if you used to constantly eat papaya / pineapple, what should go wrong now?
