I don’t know about all the teas, but I think barley tea is supposed to be a good tea to drink during pregnancy,

I moved it to the Babies forum for you!

Your doctor should be able to give you a list of herbs to avoid consuming during pregnancy.  You should also avoid taking any herbal supplements that haven’t been cleared by your OB.

You could try paging Dr. Google, but his answers can be very dubious.

um… well, I drink chamomile tea all the time… I really hadn’t really given herbal teas any thought at all. Damn…

I am bummed- I went in for my pre-preg/annual exam and was told to switch from green tea to a black tea Frown  I’m having a hard time finding something that I like enough to drink every day.

I really love green tea, but she said that it eats up folic acid.  Booo!

Raspberry Leaf tea is pretty good and has lots of antioxidants!

I was told by my OB to stay away from herbal teas, as they may have uterine stimulative effects.  I’ve taken to drinking fruit teas like peach/passion (Celestial Seasonings).  My favorite was always Apricot Honeybush, but I’ve had to give that one up 🙁
