Pregnancy / Herbs To Avoid During Pregnancy


General Pregnancy / Pregnancy / Herbs To Avoid During Pregnancy Information
There is no herb that is guaranteed safe for use during pregnancy, so women should always check with a doctor before using any supplement. Herbs used in cooking are usually safe due to the small amounts called for in recipes, but beware of using larger doses used in teas. Some herbs and supplements can cause complications in pregnancy, and for that reason, should be strictly avoided.

The FDA advises pregnant women refrain from using any herbal products before checking with their healthcare provider. Herbs and supplements are not government tested before hitting the shelves, and they can vary drastically in strength and quality from batch to batch and brand to brand. Herbs can also contain ingredients that could harm the mother and the growing fetus. Miscarriage, premature birth, uterine contractions, fetal injury and/or complication in the mother could result. Thus, it is essential for pregnant women to get approval of any herb, vitamin or supplement use from her physician.
