Does a pregnant woman need to fast?

Question:

What do the scholars and experts of shari’ah saying regarding the fasting of pregnant woman?

Answer:

If a woman has the strength to keep a fast whilst pregnant, and there is no danger to her or the child, then it will be obligatory for her to fast. If she fears for her own health or that of her child, she can leave the fasts, and make them up later.

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
