Avoid Pineapple During Pregnancy

This fruit too is considered by many as a pregnancy no, no. Pineapples are rich in bromelain which can cause the softening of the cervix leading to early labour. However, for that to happen, a pregnant woman has to drink pineapple juice in excessive quantities that will first lead to diarrhoea! One can have pineapple in moderate quantities as it will have no effect on labour and delivery. However, its intake should be restricted during the first trimester to avoid any unforeseen event such as softening of the cervix. Many women also claim that one can drink a lot of pineapple juice if they want to induce labour!
