Hello there! It is said that eating pineapple and papaya during the pregnancy is harmful for the fetus, however there are no such clinical studies backing this statement.
But yes! for precautionary measures you should avoid papaya (contains papain) and pineapple (bromelian) because they can trigger miscarriage and the onset of premature labour.
