When it comes to sweeteners, pregnant women have to be especially careful. Consuming too much sugar can lead to weight gain, which can be dangerous for both mother and baby. Too much sugar is also especially dangerous for women with gestational diabetes.

This leads many pregnant women to search for something to sweeten their food and drinks without sugar. There are many options for zero sugar sweeteners, many of which are artificial, like sucralose, aspartame, saccharine, and more. It is important to note that some of these artificial sweeteners may not be safe for pregnant women to consume.

Stevia and monk fruit are two natural sweeteners that are considered safe for pregnant women to use. These sweeteners are derived from natural sources and have no calories or carbohydrates. They also do not raise blood sugar levels, making them a good choice for pregnant women with gestational diabetes or those trying to eat healthier and manage their blood sugar levels.

Stevia is a sweetener and sugar substitute derived from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana. Stevia has no calories and is around 200-300 times sweeter than sugar. It has been traditionally used as a sweetener in South America for centuries, and is considered safe for pregnant women to consume. The FDA has classified Stevia as a generally recognized as safe (GRAS) substance, which means it has a long history of safe use.

Monk fruit, also known as luo han guo, is a small, round fruit native to southern China. The extract is 150-200 times sweeter than sugar, but it has no calories or carbohydrates. It has been traditionally used as a sweetener in Asia for centuries and is considered safe for pregnant women to consume. The FDA has also classified monk fruit extract as GRAS.

It's important to note that while Stevia and monk fruit are considered safe during pregnancy, it's always best to consult with your healthcare provider before making any changes to your diet. Pregnant women should also pay attention to their total sugar intake from all sources, regardless of whether it's from natural or artificial sweeteners. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that pregnant women limit their intake of added sugars to less than 6 teaspoons per day
