Pregnant expatriates with international health insurance may wish to speak to a professional if they start to develop cravings for non-foods.
This is according to Sarah Montagu, admin secretary for the Association of Radical Midwives, who said this can be a sign of nutritional deficiency.
A craving common among expectant mothers is to consume wall plaster, which can indicate a lack of calcium, she declared.
Pregnant woman Emma Veness recently went to her GP to discuss her cravings for furniture polish, as she was concerned that the substance could hurt her baby.
"Some things could be harmful for you," Ms Montagu stated.
She advised people who start to suffer from "bizarre" cravings to seek out medical help and recommended trying normal items, which may divert the urge to eat non-foods.
The expert noted that strong desires for strawberries or other foods are normal during pregnancy and not a concern.
"It is fine to eat those kinds of things," she concluded.
