Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

chammomile, and green as far as i know. look at for a list of herbal teas that are unsafe during pregnacy.
Well, one that I would avoid is raspberry leaf tea because I have read that women have used it for a long time to start labor. I would not say that other herbal teas are necessarily unsafe, but I usually hear it advised to avoid most of them because they really don't know if they are safe. There have not been conclusive studies that indicate that they are safe or unsafe.
