Conversion of a pregnant woman


Normally, a woman who converts to Judaism must then wait three months before she can marry, so that she will know with certainty that any subsequent conception occurred after the conversion. However, a woman who is pregnant at the time of conversion need not wait, since the reason for waiting is obviously inapplicable.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 1:158)

Have a great day,
