HOW HERBS ARE USED IN PREGNANCY

 Pregnancy Over 40 and Herbal Treatments

exposure before or during pregnancy was 8.9 percent.

The most commonly reported products used early in pregnancy were ginger, which has been shown to help ease morning sickness, without side effects to the unborn child, and ephedra, an herbal stimulant that was banned in the U.S. in 2004 after reports linked it to heart attacks, strokes and at least 155 deaths.

The products used most often throughout pregnancy were herbal teas and chamomile, which has also been shown to ease morning sickness.

Herb exposure was more prevalent in women older than 30 and with more than 12 years of education. Of the 10 states studied, Iowa had the lowest rate of herbal use (5.4 percent) and Utah had the highest (16.5 percent).

"The fact that use of herbal products was greatest during the first trimester raises concerns about fetal safety, because this is a critical period of fetal organ development," Broussard noted.
