What are the ingredients? There are somethings like red raspberry leaf tea that some people don’t want to drink in the first trimester.

No! That’s for late third trimester only. The raspberry leaf is known to stimulate the uterus and can cause contractions.

kristenanne26:  just try to avoid any caffeinated drinks and eat a well balanced diet and do light exercise. the pregnancy tea is for people in late pregnancy since it’s thought the red raspberry leaf can help induce labor. I’m 5 weeks 5 days so I know how you feel about wanting to make sure you do everything right. Just do your best to stay healthy and keep stress low. Best of luck to you!

I was advised to avoid all teas and caffienes until late first trimester or early second.

Well it technically doesn’t induce labor, it tones the uterus. But if you have a history of miscarriage or are super early it’s best to avoid.

caffeine is fine, in small amounts. So if you love tea, there is nothing wrong with continuing to drink black or green tea.

I was on the search for some teas I could drink during pregnancy. I’ve found that most Of the holiday teas from “Stash” are totally safe. I’ve been able to find them in my local Wegman’s.

If you can find it- try rooibos tea. It contains no caffeine, and has loads of benefits for skin, digestion etc. It’s divine with a bit of honey and milk

Being from South Africa, I grew up with rooibos. I don’t drink any other tea

I stuck with green, roobios, and chamomile until the 3rd tri. Both our childbirth instructor and midwife said to hold of on any RRL teas until I hit 28 weeks, so I followed those instructions. Both said that waiting until 3rd tri is more precautionary than anything else, given that I have no hiostory of miscarriage or early labor. But I’m with them on being safe rather than sorry. Not that I think RRL would cause a problem, but if something were to happen I would always have that “what if I hadn’t” thought nagging me.

kristenanne26:  If you’re that early, you might want to try this pregnancy tea as it would help with nausea as well.

I generally would avoid green tea (as it will deplete folic acid). Avoid chamomile in third trimester.

Anything with ginger, lemongrass is fine.
