Seeds are "pepper": Ground up pepper seeds are the "pepper" used in flavoring our foods. That means they are not poisonous, as people eat pepper seeds throughout the world. If a person eats pepper before pregnancy, they should cause no harm during pregnancy unless the pepper causes more heartburn and reflux in the woman.
