|Bais Ovi: Can Pregnant Women Attend A Funeral?|
|The Bais Ovi (5:82) was asked what is the source of the minhag that pregnant women do not attend a Levaya, and if this applies to relatives as well? |
He answered that he never heard of any such minhag. The only thing he would venture to guess is that they are afraid that the pain and anguish of the funeral would cause a miscarriage and therefore voluntarily chose not to go.
