Is it safe to have Okra during pregnancy?

Does okra have vitamins that help during pregnancy

Okra - also known as...

Ladies fingers, Bhindi, Bamia, Ochro, Gumbo,

Does okra have vitamins that help during pregnancy?

Yes. The vitamins present in okra help prevent neural tube defects like spina bifida, a type of birth defect, and ensure the healthy growth of babies in the womb. Okra is particularly suggested in the 4th and 12th week of pregnancy. Okra is also rich in folate, which aids in the development of the neural tube. Okra also contains vitamin C, which strengthens the immune system of the baby and helps in the development of blood vessels, bone, and skin. Okra is rich in fibre which helps in lowering blood cholesterol and prevents gestational diabetes.
