Tea is a lovely alternative to soda or fructose laden juices and bottled drinks while pregnant. Pregnant women should consult their doctor before consuming green, black, oolong, white, and red teas due to the caffeine content. Some practitioners state that too much caffeine during pregnancy can increase the chances of complications during pregnancy. Please check with your primary physician to be certain.
Pregnant women can explore drinking herbal teas which are devoid of caffeine. It is recommended to read the label of any tea for its ingredients. Certain herbs such as cohosh, pennyroyal or mugwort should not be consumed at all during pregnancy. Ma Huang should not be consumed during pregnancy, and neither should any teas containing any ephedra.
