Safe, But...

Make sure you wash them.

Although safe to eat during pregnancy, hot peppers may cause heartburn, rectal discomfort, and overall discomfort to pregnancy women according to Livestrong. It is essential that pregnant women wash their peppers prior to eating them. 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
