  • Marshmallow Root tea while pregnant?

    I just discovered I am about 5 weeks pregnant. Prior to getting pregnant I found great success in using IC Aloe Vera, Marshmallow Root tea, and Prosed DS. I have stopped the IC Aloe and Prosed, but still drink Marshmallow Root tea in the morning. I have done some research regarding Marshmallow Root tea during pregnancy, and I am finding that the available information is contradictory at best. My OB said there is not enough research available to know whether or not it is harmful to the fetus, so I should avoid use of it for the next 8 months. Does anyone know if it is safe to drink the tea while pregnant?

    I would suggest caution since your doctor hasn't been able to tell you whether it's safe for your baby.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy --- I hope you feel good throughout.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe
