Should a pregnant woman who broke fast because of pregnancy make it up, and is a ransom due on her?

Should a pregnant woman who broke fast because of pregnancy make it up, and is a ransom due on her?

Answer:
The pregnant and the suckling, if they fear for their health, may break their fast and make up for it, and no ransom is due on them. However, if they broke fast in fear for the fetus and the baby, then they are obliged to make up for it, and pay the ransom which is feeding a needy person for each of the missed fasting days.
