Ask Dr Pam   

Is pineapple safe in pregnancy or can it induce premature labour and miscarriage?


Pineapple is safe in pregnancy. It contains higher amounts of the enzyme bromelain which breaks down proteins and actually help reduce inflammation. There are other beneficial nutrients in pineapples such as vitamin C which is important for collagen production and growth of your baby.
