Safe, But...

Make sure they are washed!

Onions are a safe choice during pregnancy. However, it is essential that pregnant women wash their onions 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

According to Livestrong, onions may cause heartburn in pregnant women.
