No, it is advisable to avoid gingko nuts during pregnancy. According to a study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, ginkgo nuts should be used with caution during pregnancy due to lack of reliable studies on humans to understand their impact during pregnancy. Limited animal and in vitro studies suggest ginkgo nuts should be avoided, particularly around labour where its anti-platelet properties could potentially prolong bleeding time.
The same study also mentions that during lactation the safety of ginkgo leaf is unknown and should be avoided until high quality human studies are conducted to prove its safety.
If you wish to have ginkgo nuts during pregnancy, it is best to consult with your doctor before.
