Safe!: Buttermilk is safe during pregnancy. There are a few things that are not ok during pregnancy like certain medications as well as alcohol consumption. It is important to eat a balanced and healthy diet. You might go off certain foods, but it's always possible to swap these with others of similar nutritional value. Pasteurization prevents disease, so try to use a brand that is pasteurized.
