No. An adult can ingest honey because there body can handle any bacteria left in the honey. A child under should not eat honey because there digestive system is to immature to handle it. Drinking honey shouldn't affect the baby during pregnancy, unless you're on a sugar-limited diet for some reason (if you are diabetic). Honey contains botulism spores which can cause food poisoning if you give it to a baby less than a year old, so you shouldn't feed it to infants under a year.
