What do other women do?

Some surveys suggest that about three quarters of pregnant Muslim women worldwide choose to fast for Ramadan. But everyone has their own way of observing Ramadan.

Most Islamic leaders say you should fast if you are healthy enough to do so. But they also say that if you are unwell you must not fast. You shouldn't ignore this special permission if you feel unwell or fear that fasting could harm you or your baby.

Only you can judge how healthy you feel and what the right decision is for you. Talk to your family, your doctor, and an Islamic sheikh to help you to consider your options.
