Pregnant women can eat arugula as there are no known side effects. It is a good source of folate. When given to women during the period around conception, folate helps prevent neural tube defects in newborns. And since arugula is relatively low in oxalate content compared with spinach, purslane, mustard greens, celery, etc., the greens can be safely used during pregnancy and lactation.
