Are dates safe to eat during the first trimester of pregnancy?

Yes, they are! Aside from vitamins and minerals, they also contain fatty acids that help produce prostaglandins, which aid in blood flow. Dates also reduce the need for oxytocin and have a significant role in labor. However, we still recommend consulting your OB-GYN before adding them to your diet.
