  • I don't think so, but tea does have caffeine in it. I would suggest she find decaf teas.

  • I would say she's ok so long as she sticks to teas you can buy at the grocery store. At least those you know don't contain anything harmful.

  • Raspberry leaf and Chamomile should be avoided during the first trimester for sure. I would ask a doctor about any other ones she drinks on a regular basis.
