  • Green tea should be avoided, at least in early pregnancy (the antioxidants can interfere with absorption of folic acid which is important for fetal development, especially in the early stages). Caffeine in moderation, of course; herbal teas don't have caffeine, but decaffeinated black tea is fine, too, or even a cup or two of regular black tea. Anything else should be fine.

  • lemon zinger teas are good. But avoid Valerian root tea at all cost since it's known to induce miscarriages.

  • peppermint is a great decongestant

    chamomile is soothing and good for morning sickness (so are ginger and licorice)
