Hello Susun, my name is Samantha I am about 8 weeks pregnant.
I have been into/using herbs for a long time but in pregnancy I have so many questions about safety. I was given your childbearing year and have been studying it and other sources and so much is conflicting. I started making simple red rasp/nettle/chamomile tea, but then was told that rasp and nettle may make me contract and have a miscarriage. To only use after first tri.
So, in contradiction, the stuff that you are talking about says its fine through the whole pregnancy. I just want a clear answer if you have time to respond to me. I would appreciate it a lot as my hormones and brain have been feeling a little crazy.
-- Blessings, Samantha
