Is it safe?

I have been hearing about the benefits of Coconut Oil. I read on the tropical traditions website that pregnant women shouldnt take it because diarrhea could be a side effect. Others have felt nauseous after taking it. Yet, some have told me that midwives say its excellent for you. Who is right here?
Thanks Jennifer

Coconut Oil IS great! I've never heard of any "side effects" from taking it.
If you take any oil in excess you will have diarrhea. It does have lauric acid (the fatty acid component of bm) so in theory you could experience diarrhea while healing.
