Pregnant women can undoubtedly have cultured cheese and other cultured dairy products such as butter and curds so long as they are made of pasteurised milk. The idea behind pasteurized milk is that the milk is bacteria free and hence absolutely safe for pregnant women to consume products made from them. Cottage cheese, ricotta, cream cheese, processed cheeses like American and hard cheeses, cheddar and Parmesan are all okay.(source: http://www.thefamilygroove.com/janpregmyths.htm)
