Safe, But...

Make sure it is washed!

Parsley is a safe choice during pregnancy. Parsley is a diuretic food, which according to Livestrong, helps remedy edema during pregnancy. However, it is essential that pregnant women wash their parsley 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
