  • NO!! Mayo clinic says baby is at high risk for birth defects and developmental delays! Benadryl, however is ok to help sleep. My OB had me using it every pregnancy.

  • No. I looked into it while I was pregnant and everything said it was a no go. A safer alternative is Unisom, which some drs prescribe for morning sickness.
