Safe herbal teas?

Can anyone direct me toward a reliable list of safe herbal teas while pregnant?


I specifically want fennel tea. I am still so sick and everything leaves a horrible taste on my tongue and my digestion is terrible right now. Fennel has such a nice clearing effect on my taste buds and aids digestion. I've seen mixed reviews online about its safety.

Whoops! I see that someone just asked this! But I don't see any websites listed and I don't have any herbal books on hand. Still wondering about fennel if anyone knows...

Fennel is great for digestive upset, but not sure about during pregnancy. I know that a local place here sells fennel seeds that you brew and wait to cool down and give to your baby to help with tummy troubles, but again, not sure about in utero.

Three kids and one on the way.

According to Susan Weed's book, Fennel is great for pregnancy. It helps with morning sickness and heartburn, promotes lactation, and eases colic.
