Pregnancy Week 2: Old Wives' Tales
Pregnant women are often asked to exclude foods like papaya from their diet as it is said to cause miscarriage. However, multiple studies have proved that eating ripe papayas in moderation is harmless. Infact, ripe papayas are rich in vitamins and can ease constipation. So relax if you hear this again from a well wisher!
Note: Be careful and avoid raw papayas as they contain latex, a substance which could cause uterine contractions.
