Thanks for writing to us.

Eating seasame seeds during pregnancy, particularly in 2nd trimester, is not so harmful for growing fetus & mother. It is one type of myth & misconception in India regarding miscarriage due to this but there is no as such scientifically proved data available to support that.

For more information, you can read this article on the following webpage
Consumption of light amount does not cause any type of stomach upset. So it is better to eat in small amount.

Hope, this information is quite helpful to you. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

For any future query, you can directly ask me by viewing this page WWW.WWWW.WW
Wish your good health & successful motherhood.
