It is preferable for women to avoid Neufchatel, a soft cheese commonly made with unpasteurized milk during pregnancy. This is because there are high chances that neufchatel contains a harmful bacteria known as listeria. It is important for pregnant women to stay away from listeria as it causes an infection known as listeriosis that can lead to serious complications like miscarriage, premature birth and even stillbirth during pregnancy. If you still wish to eat neufchatel cheese, then consult your physcian before having it.
