It is not bad: I can find no evidence that passion fruit is of any harm during pregnancy. Given that it is a rich source of vitamins and fiber, it seems like a safe and healthy choice during pregnancy - if you have heard something different, please let me know!

Passion Flower: Passion flower is not recommended during pregnancy because some substances it contains may cause uterine contractions (per medline plus) http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/871.Html.

All fresh fruit!: Pregnant women can safely consume all fresh (preferably organic) fruits and vegetables provided they wash them well with clean uncontaminated water and are not allergic to them. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes mellitus talk to nutritionist about the amount and type of fruits to consume. Don't overdo it with carrots/tomatoes because they can cause hypervitaminosis a - a potential teratogen.
