The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, still had her arm in a sling and a protective bandage as she sat in court watching Raja on screen. 
She suffered multiple stab wounds in the incident including injuries to her abdomen but her baby was safely delivered in hospital hours after the attack.
Several passers-by who saw the confrontation in Sutton Coldfield town centre in the West Midlands stepped in to intervene and help the heavily bleeding woman. 
Emergency services including the West Midlands Air Ambulance were called and she was taken to hospital where her baby was delivered. 
Raja, who was not asked to enter a plea, will appear again on 23 May.
He has been remanded in custody.
