Is it safe to take herbs in pregnancy?

There is always a risk involved in the use of any medication during pregnancy, especially during the first three months, and this is just as true for herbs as it is for conventional medicines. Many herbs are theoretically capable of causing uterine contractions, which could pose a threat to the foetus. Therefore we strongly recommend that you seek the advice of a professional medical herbalist before taking any herbs during pregnancy.
