Celiacs and pregnancy

Patient : My son in law has celiacs. My daughter does NOT. She has been doing gluten free for about two years, out of convenience with cooking etc. She is pregnant. Suddenly, she is craving some of her favorite foods like raisin bran, and sandwiches and toast. She has been very nauseous and the rice crackers were not helping with the nausea and vomiting. Somehow, she heard that to prevent celiacs in her baby she should remain gluten free during her pregnancy and while nursing. I feel she should eat what she needs and craves and by eating gluten, the baby may tolerate it just fine. In homeopathy you give the substance that creates the reaction to build a tolerance. I cannot find anything about a non celiac Mom with a celiac Dad and what to do in pregnancy.
