Is yoghurt safe to eat when pregnant?

Yes

Yes, yes, yes! Yoghurt is a great choice for you, mommy! If you want yoghurt with fruit, best to add it yourself to plain yoghurt, as the pre-mixed ones can contain lots of sugar.

Benefits

Yogurt is rich in proteins that help you build cells in your body (and there are lots of them built during pregnancy). It is also very useful for me, as protein is an important material in forming my muscles and brain. It is also rich in calcium that is needed to properly develop my bones and muscles. Calcium deficiency causes calcium to be released from your bones.
