Making up missed fast due to pregnancy

Shall a woman make up her missed fasts due to pregnancy? Or can she feed poor people instead?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

There is a difference in Scholars’ opinion regarding this, and Sheikh Hassan Al-Banna takes with the opinion that you can feed a poor Muslim for each day you didn’t fast due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. You don’t fast these missed days. This is according to a hadith of Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him.
