Safe, But...

Be cautious and make sure you wash it!

According to Livestrong, garlic is a safe and healthy choice during pregnancy. Pregnant women should not eat too much garlic before, during, or after labor because it is known to cause excessive bleeding. It is essential that pregnant women wash their garlic 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
