Like many potent herbs, Blue Cohosh is a potential poison. Thus, instead of self-care with potentially toxic herbs, seek the guidance of an experienced herbalist. Some herbalists are specialized in pregnancy care, while other medical practitioners could take a hard line, saying that pregnant women should only use food herbs, not medicinal herbs. Also you should know blue cohosh has been linked to heart problems in the baby. The herbs are not recommended unless you are past 40 weeks gestation.
