Hi first-timer, I ate Ricotto cheese recently when we were away on holidays as it definetely wasnt on the list of cheeses not to eat that both my GP and hospital midwife gave me or in any of the books. Seeing as I couldnt eat the cottage cheese or shellfish that were always on the menus, I ate the Ricotto and it didnt do me any harm at all. I had a 16 week scan the other day and all was perfect and I double checked with midwife about what I had eaten and she said it was fine. Maybe other people mightn't have the same opinion but personally, it didnt do me any harm! Good luck xx

I also read that parmesan is ok to eat and i know for a fact that most parmesan is UNPASTEURISED, its one of the few that actually states it! and yet its still on lots of the ok cheeses to eat list! i dunno. :(
