Can someone please tell me why this product is not for pregnancy? If it is organic herbs and all I don't understand how it is bad during pregnancy.

My other question is...has anyone tried it yet? Is it any good as far as taste?

Many herbs are not safe during pregnancy because a higher amount crosses the placenta than what would pass into breastmilk. I'm guessing it's something to help produce milk? You cannot do that during pregnancy--the delivery of the placenta sets in motion the hormone cascade that signals milk production.

Nevet tried it, but not all herbs are safe for pregnancy. If it has fenugreek, for instance, you shouldnt take it during pregnancy.

I think there is one kind... milk plus two or something. But unfortunately pregnancy hormones kill supply and it can't be brought back to a full supply until after delivery.

That's the one made my Tia and Tamera Mowry right? It has fenugreek in it which is a no no during pregnancg. Besides there is nothing you can do now to do anything about your supply, so there would be no point in taking it.

Yea I know that. I just wanted to drink one just so I could tell if I liked it or not that's all. But I guess I gotta wait.

Thank you to all for clarifying I didn't realize that some herbs could be harmful to pregnancy...with them being natural and all i would have never guessed. Thanks again!

Not all natural things are good during pregnancy. Coffee is natural and you are really not supposed tho drink that either
