Fasting on Tisha Be’Av

What is the halacha pertaining to a woman in her 5th month of pregnancy in regards to the fast of the 9th of Av?

Answer:

A pregnant woman should fast unless her doctor (frum) has reservations over doing so. If a non-frum doctor tells her she shouldn’t fast, the reason should be requested, and a rabbi should be consulted with.
