Now although this post is intended to inform pregnant women of the best pastries in Paris, let me be clear that you don’t technically have to be pregnant to try these French pastries. In fact, I would suggest that you sample a few of these desserts so you can sympathize with what pregnant women have to go through.

I’ve come up with a list delicious Parisian pastries that are typically safe for pregnant women to eat, but you should always ask whether these desserts contain any ingredients that may be harmful to expecting mothers.

For a list of foods that are safe and unsafe for pregnant women, check out my post on 10 Foods You Can Actually Eat When You’re Pregnant in Paris.

With all that women go through during pregnancy, they deserve a little treat…or 12.

So without further ado, here are the 12 best French pastries that every pregnant woman must try before her water breaks.

Sorry about the mystery surrounding that last photo. I cannot for the life of me remember its name. I’m calling mommy brain on that one. At any rate, it was delicious and covered in macarons. If anyone knows what it’s called, please leave me a comment below!

I hope these delicious pastries satisfy your pregnancy cravings.

    • Thanks, Happy Mommy! Pack your bags and go to Paris this instant! I was just reading your post on “To Breastfeed or Not to Breastfeed” and was thinking of writing one on the differences of breastfeeding in Paris and in North America.
