Yes: Some people believe that eating them in the last 4 weeks of pregnancy shortens labor and may reduce the risk of requiring an induction. This has not been proven in rigorous clinical trials and remains anecdotal at best.

Yes: Dates are fine as long as you don't have diabetes complicating your pregnancy.
