  • Before pregnancy, drink 2 cups per day. Abstain during first trimester and begin again at 35 weeks. By resuming at 35 weeks it has been studied to help reduce labor pains.

  • There have been rumors about it bringing on labor (but who knows how accurate that is) With that in mind though, I wouldn't drink until at least after 35 weeks, and, as with all herbal anything, I'd ask the doc first just to be sure. I have it in my cupboard for menstrual cramps, and now just saving it for 6 weeks from now :)
