Herbs used in Teas
The following are common ingredients you may find in herbal teas, even though some have a questionable safety rating. The safety ratings given here are from the Natural Medicines Database. More extensive research and discussions with your treating health care provider will help you make the decision about what herbs are safe for you to use in teas.
~Red Raspberry Leaf (Likely Safe) - Rich in iron, this herb has helped tone the uterus, increase milk production, decrease nausea, and ease labor pains. Many of the “Pregnancy Teas” commonly contain Red Raspberry leaf to help promote uterine health during pregnancy.
There is some controversy about whether this should be used throughout pregnancy or just in the second and third trimester, so many health care providers will remain cautious and only recommend using it after the first trimester.
~Peppermint Leaf (Likely Safe) - Helpful in relieving nausea/morning sickness and flatulence.
~Lemon Balm (Likely Safe) - Has a calming effect and helps relieve irritability, insomnia and anxiety.
~Ginger root (Possibly Safe) -Helps relieve nausea and vomiting.
Dandelion (Insufficient Reliable Information Available) - Rich in Vitamin A, calcium and iron; dandelion root and leaf can also help relieve mild edema and nourish the liver.
~Chamomile (German) (Insufficient Reliable Information Available) - High in calcium and magnesium; also helps with sleeplessness and inflammation of joints.
~Nettles (Stinging Nettles) -(Likely Unsafe-see note ) High in vitamins A, C, K, calcium, potassium and iron. Used in many “Pregnancy Teas” because it is a great all-around pregnancy tonic. (*Note on the safety of Nettles: Natural Medicines Database gives Nettles a rating of Likely Unsafe, even though it is used in countless pregnancy teas and recommended by most midwives and herbalists. This may be in relation to which part of the Nettles plant is used, the root or the leaves, and how much is used. According to other sources, the use of Nettles is encouraged during pregnancy because of all its health benefits.2)
~Rose Hips (Insufficient Reliable Information Available) - Very good source of Vitamin C and helps boost the immune system.
~Alfalfa (Possibly Unsafe) - Has Vitamin A, D, E and K; particularly good in later pregnancy to boost Vitamin K, which helps prevent postpartum hemorrhage.
~Yellow Dock (Possibly Unsafe) - Used to help treat anemia in pregnant women due to the high level of iron. Also contains Vitamins A, C and calcium. *(this may also be used as a laxative - talk with your health care provider about the use of Yellow Dock during pregnancy).
