Gingko biloba is not on the list of unsafe herbs. http://kellymom.com/bf/got-milk/herbs_to_avoid/

I was actually given gingko biloba while still in the maternity (can't for the life of me remember why though ... ) and trying to breastfeed so if they prescribe it to new moms in hospital I think you can assume it's OK.

It should be just fine..it IS unsafe when pregnant as it can cause labor
