Safe Herbal Teas To Drink When Pregnant

While not all herbal teas are safe during pregnancy, there are several you can enjoy with peace of mind. Here are some of the most recommended options:

1- Ginger Tea: Ginger is a natural remedy for nausea and morning sickness which are common pregnancy discomforts. Ginger tea is safe to consume in moderation throughout pregnancy, but limit yourself to around 1-2 cups per day.

2- Peppermint or Spearmint Tea: Peppermint tea can help soothe nausea and indigestion. If you are experiencing GERD or heartburn, peppermint in general can alleviate your symptoms so do not consume in any type.
