Pregnancy and Pomegranates

Patient: Can pregnant women eat pomegranates? I ate some earlier and have heard mixed reviews. I ate about 1/3 of a cup and am in my first trimester.

Doctor: Thank you for your question. Yes while you are pregnant you can have pomegranates provided you do not have any allergies to this fruit. In fact this fruit is rich in vitamin C which can assist in preventing infections while pregnant.Thank you for consulting
