  • Most herbal teas are okay, but as a rule you should avoid licorice root, hibiscus, lemongrass, chamomile...there are a couple others I can't remember. I accidentally drank a tea with all four of the above when I was about 30 wks pregnant and had several hours of false labor. :-/ Here is a pretty good list: http://www.suite101.com/content/herbal-teas-to-avoid-during-pregnancy-a158115
