Pregnancy and Fasting

Q: If a lady is 3 months pregnant does she have to fast?

A: A pregnant woman is not exempt from fasting, unless a Muslim gynaecologist advises the mother that fasting will cause serious complications to her fetus. In that case she is allowed to miss out the fast and keep the qadhaa after Ramadaan. Some Muslim gynaecologists advise their patients not to fast during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, for this is the formation period of the fetus. Thereafter the expecting mother can continue with her fast.
