Cranberries are not only tasty to eat but are also highly nutritious. They are rich in Vitamin E, K and copper. One of Vitamin E’s main functions is protecting cell membranes, which helps maintain the structure of cells throughout the body. With your baby’s cells multiplying at an astounding rate, Vitamin E is an important nutrient to include in your pregnancy diet. Vitamin K is essential for blood clotting. A lack of Vitamin K can lead to a rare disorder known as vitamin K deficiency bleeding. Copper helps in forming red blood cells.

In conclusion, cranberries are a good option for pregnant women. However, it is recommended that you consult with your doctor before having them, as some women tend to be allergic to berries.
