It is recommended to stay away from blue cheese, gorgonzola and many other soft cheeses. Most of them carry listeria, which can be harmful. Here is a good article from Fit Pregnancy about what foods are safe and which are not.

Pregnant women are advised not to eat soft, mould-ripened cheese.

Gorgonzola can sometimes cause harm to an unborn baby. Talk to your doctor about the risks of soft cheeses and which types to avoid during pregnancy.

Fontina cheese doesn't get pregnant--it's a cheese. No, it is not. Its made from unpasteurized milk.

NO it is not! throw that cheese away! supermarkets specifically sell moldy gorgonzola so customers will get sick!

It is not only safe to eat ricotta while pregnant, it is good for your health! It is a great source of calcium and enzymes.

The general consensus is that cheese is safe unless it is of the soft un-pasturised type . Gouda is pasturized !

No. Do not eat moldy food, unless it belongs there - like Blue Cheese or Gorgonzola.
