nigella sativa has so many good effects on our body like lowers cholesterol levels, increases HDL-C levels, improves immune system etc. when coming to pregnancy because of these good effects the fetus are grown well, mother health also good compared to mothers who didn't took this, you can consume this without any doubt in normal doses
