  • Many herbs are not safe during pregnancy. This sounds like a good question for your dr.

    Hi op I’m a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist and I received both acupuncture and herbs during my pregnancy. @dannytargaryen is correct, many herbs are unsafe during pregnancy. However if you work with a licensed acupuncturist and herbalists they will know how to treat you and what herbs are safe. Acupuncture is a wonderful way to manage the symptoms of pregnancy in all trimesters. It’s all about finding a practitioner that you like and trust. Good luck!
