Yes: By Brinjal, do you mean Eggplant? Only in the Indian cultures Brinjal is suggested to be avoided during pregnancy (Ayurveda) A normal eggplant has lots of vitamin A, dietary fiber iron. These are essential nutrients that are needed during pregnancy. It is believed that eggplants contain large amounts of phytohormones that may cause contractions so use your judgement. Moderation is key.
