Question

“Hi Vanessa, I am 19 weeks pregnant and just visited Europe (using great recommendations on traveling while pregnant from your podcast!). While there, I turned down several hazelnut pastries because I was worried that our baby has inherited my husband’s hazelnut allergy. Can a baby have an allergic reaction in the womb? And if not, is eating common allergens (nuts, dairy, wheat) a good way to desensitize a growing baby against developing allergies in the future? Would love some insight on this issue. Thanks!” – Jo
