Should I consult a doctor about eating red cabbage during pregnancy

Yes, you should consult with a doctor before eating red cabbage during your pregnancy. This is because babies often develop colic when their mothers have eaten cabbage during pregnancy. Colic is a condition where an infant cries for at least 3 hours a day, for at least 3 days a week, and this persists for at least 3 weeks.
