TEA/HERBS & PREGNANCY

During pregnancy, many women avoid caffeine altogether, whilst others limit/reduce their intake. The reasons for the reduction in caffeine whilst pregnant (and also whilst breastfeeding), have to do with the effect the caffeine has on your baby. The Mayo clinic explains that caffeine “can cross the placenta and affect your baby's heart rate.” They also state that “while further research is needed, some studies suggest that drinking too much caffeine during pregnancy might be associated with an increased risk of miscarriage.”

 

There is very little evidence and information available on what herbs are considered safe to consume during pregnancy. As a Naturopath I have always erred on the side of caution and recommended no herbal teas whilst pregnant. SpiritualiTEA Sacral Tisane and the Solar Plexus Tisane are both caffeine and herbal free.

 

The SpiritualiTEA Sacral blend is a sweet blend of Honeybush along with Mango and Orange pieces whilst the SpiritualiTEA Solar Plexus blend is a smooth mix of Rooibos, Banana, Goji Berries and Vanilla pods.
