Papaya in Pregnancy

Unripe papaya is not good to consume during pregnancy as it contains papain and latex. Latex in papaya can cause uterine contractions which can lead to miscarriage or early labor.

However, Ripe papaya is rich in iron and is considered safe but still consult your doctor before you plan to include it in your diet.

I personally avoided papaya all together in my pregnancy to be on safer side.
