aditi manja

asha chaudhry haha thanks for the tag. Even I am not really the correct person to answer this cos I didn't really follow the rules per se :D I ate everything during pregnancy and after delivery. So same pinch to you! Priti Khandelwal yeah even I think I ate berries and all. But if you are concerned you can ask your doctor. Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa pls guide

Sheeba Vijesh

me too, i ate everything that i could get my hands on asha chaudhry... but i actually dont know what falsa is... 😀

Priti Khandelwal

it actually belongs to the berry family,but relatively small in size

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello..
Yes it is from berry family... i first time had its sherbet ( phalsa juice ) in punjab.. one of my friend told me about this fruit... it actually beats heat- good cooling effect... it is famous fruit in pakistan during peak summer season... As im a gynec, my first question to my friend was- is this indicated in pregnancy? does it cause harm to fetus? 😂😂
yeah her answer was YES- it can be used but in moderate quantity... It maintains the heart rate and blood pressure, relieves thirst, protects against heat stroke, vomiting, nausea, and uneasy feelings due to heat, relieves headaches burning sensations, acidity, anorexia, cures anemia..

Harneet (clanpedia)

yes. shud be ok.
as i always say, anything in moderation is fine. i had papaya and jackfruit allmoat everyday (which is considered allmost no in pregnancy). if u over do anything, it will cause a problem
