I would have been completely fine with a wait staff member or chef looking out for my unborn babys welfare. Sure it can be taken as condescending or not appropriate for a stranger to do, but if it was done in an attitude of sincerity/kindness then I would have probably walked away thinking 'wow they sure took a risk in sticking their neck out for me'.
Who knows what kind of background or personal experiences these people may have had.. Perhaps it could have purely come from a 'protection of business reputation' or perhaps they could have experienced sad or unpleasant personal circumstances.
We eat out at restaurants a lot and there have been countless instances when well meaning staff have said or offered to do something for either my nearly 10mo DD or for me as I look obviously pregnant. No biggie... A simple 'smile n nod' or 'thanks, but we're right'.
Wouldn't it be great if commuters could be so considerate of pregnant women?

I think overall I prefer restaurant staff to know about pregnancy-safe foods because I get embarrassed being the one to always bring it up (I feel like a pain constantly telling people I'm pregnant).
I actually asked a burger place to cook the burger well because I'm preggo and I was disappointed and worried after I took a few bites and the middle of the burger was raw, not just rare.

I would think that the staff were being really caring provided they didn't judge if I didn't go with their suggestion. It sure beats being looked at like you're a pain in the **** if you ask questions about whether foods contain raw egg or if meat is well done. And as for places that don't cook eggs well done when you explain why you want it done - really irritating especially when they source eggs from a supplier that has recently been implicated in a salmonella outbreak!

When I was pg, we went to a very fancy restaurant. The meal was a choice of two different set menus. We chose one that had a few no-no foods on it and the waiter came out and asked me if I wanted anything to be cooked or prepared differently. I said no, unless there was any question about the freshness/food handling! Lol! We both laughed and I had my meal as per the menu. I thought it was nice of them to check with me.

I think I would have been taken aback a little if a chef suggested that to me, but then I would be appreciative of their consideration. I definitely don't think it's rude though.
