Some of the side effects when consuming Chia seeds is a sudden drop in blood pressure that can be hurtful, increase risk of bleeding, and has additive properties. It is a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Suggest using flax seed, nuts, and high fiber foods as sources of Omega-3 while you are pregnant to be on the safe side.
