Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

Nettle has been considered both bad and good for pregnancy throughout the years. Like many other plants (and herbs) , there is not always a general consensus.

EmpowHER has an article on nettles and states that nettle is NOT recommended for pregnant women. You can read all about this here: http://www.empowher.com/adult-living/content/mamaki-tea-made-nettles-hawaii

Please talk to your doctor or midwife before taking nettle. It's always better to err on the side of caution.
