Are herbs safe during pregnancy?
Posted by Stephan Mackenzie on 22 April 2011 11:18 AM
Less research has been done on herb use during pregnancy than on vitamins or minerals, but it is helpful to recall that herbs have been in use for hundreds and even thousands of years (long before isolated vitamins, minerals or prescription pharmaceuticals were available!) While research is beginning to establish safety in humans during pregnancy (echinacea for immunity and ginger for nausea, for example), it is generally not advised to take herbs during this time, unless specifically directed by your healthcare practitioner. As is true at all times, but especially during pregnancy or while nursing, be sure and discuss these questions with your healthcare provider
