Safe, But...

Be cautious and make sure you wash it!

According to Livestrong, cooked eggplant is a safe and healthy choice during pregnancy. Raw eggplant, however, is not recommended for pregnant women because it may cause digestion issues. It is essential that pregnant women wash their eggplant prior to eating it. Unwashed produce may contain harmful bacteria and parasites that can cause food-borne diseases such as toxoplasmosis and listeriosis according to the FDA and the American Pregnancy Association
