In many cultures across the world, strawberries are associated with motherhood, fertility, and abundance. Strawberries are among the first plant to produce fruit after winter in the areas where they are native, signifying rebirth and a new start. The “seeds" you see on the outside of a strawberry are actually the plant's ovaries! Each “seed" is technically a separate fruit that has a seed inside of it. Strawberries are also recognized for their rich vitamin c and folic acid levels, which are great for promoting a healthy pregnancy.
