Is it safe to eat strawberries during pregnancy?
I am now 22 weeks pregnant and I just want to know if it is safe to eat strawberries during pregnancy? I've heard from numerous sources that it can possibly cause severe birth defects in the baby and excessive birthmarks.

I am not sure who told you that strawberries cause birth defects and birthmarks, but this is completely untrue!
Besides tasting delicious, strawberries are a wonderful source of Vitamin C- which is great if you are allergic to citrus- and now is the season for them. Rest assured, no harm will come to you or your baby if you eat strawberries throughout your pregnancy.
