Hi Bees, I like having a good cup of tea at night before bed to help calm me. I really like and have been using for years, this tea: https://www.davidstea.com/ca_en/mother-s-little-helper-org
I keep trying to look up the ingredients seeing if it is safe but so many are contradictory… What do you all think?

I have this tea too. From what I have read the amount of each ingredient in the tea once it’s brewed is so low it shouldn’t cause any problems in pregnancy unless you are drinking an extraordinary amount. I personally have not stopped drinking it and have had no problems.

Great, thank you!! I just like a small cup… Good to see a vice is okay to keep, 🙂

From what I have read, one small cup of tea shouldn’t be an issue. The problem is with the caffeine in the tea. If you start feeling that by mid/end pregnancy your baby feels restless or you are having trouble sleeping at night, then avoid it.
Otherwise you could change to a low caffeine tea or a tisana. Be careful with tisanas because not all plants are recommended during pregnancy.

There’s actually no caffeine in this tea. So it should be relatively safe to drink. Always check with your doc if you’re worried about the ingredients though.

I love to drink tea and also find it very difficult to cut down. I’m 7 weeks pregnant and to be safe only allow myself a cup or two of Chinese/Oolong/Jasmine once a week.
Double check with your doctor about The Mother’s Little Helper by David’s Tea. It contains chamomile. Depending on which website you visit, chamomile is not recommended for pregnant women.

the issue with tea and coffee is caffeiene. Chamomile is caff free. One cup of coffee a day is ok.

Thanks all ladies.
It has too hibiscus, which I heard is a major no-no? I called my doctor yesterday, but wasn;t able to get through. 🙁

Definitely try to check with your dr. It’s not just the caffeine, there are a lot of herbs that are a no-no during pregnancy. The amount in the tea is probably so small it wouldn’t matter but best to be on the safe side.
