Will exposure to gluten during pregnancy cause any problems with the baby?

Stay gluten-free during pregnancy and rest assured nothing gluten-related will happen to the baby. Inadvertent, minimal exposures (if not repeated) are meaningless for the health of pregnancy. In women with undiagnosed celiac disease, however, gluten has been related to an increased risk of infertility and miscarriages. April, 2013
