  • Well i have 3 kids and with each of my pregnancies my OBGYN told me not to drink ANY teas because some of them can cause miscarriages.

  • Ask your doctor but a cup of green tea should be OK. Don't drink herbals.

  • chamomile, ginger and licorice teas are all great for morning sickness
    peppermint is a natural decongestant and is also calming (so is chamomile)
    your last three months, have a cup of raspberry leaf tea daily to help strenghthen your uterus.
