Avoid Papaya During Pregnancy

Many cultures firmly believe that eating papayas during pregnancy is a strict no, no. Papaya intake apparently brings on labour early. This is partially true. Papayas, especially the unripe and semi-ripe ones are rich in latex which is known to trigger uterine contractions. There are also heating in nature and are better avoided during the third and final trimester of pregnancy.However, ripe papayas are excellent during pregnancy. Ripe papayas are rich in vitamins such as vitamin C and other wholesome nutrients that prevent the onset on pregnancy symptoms such as heartburn and constipation. Papayas mixed with honey and milk is also an excellent tonic for pregnant women especially during lactation.

Excellent info, a fully ripe papaya is not considered dangerous, a papaya that is at all unripe contains a latex substance that triggers uterine contractions and may cause a miscarriage.
