I bought this:

and it says WARNING: Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

But everything I look up online says elderberry is safe?

What do you guys think?

Don't know about Sambucus, but I drink elderberry in tea while pregnant and nursing with no contraindication (I'm pretty sure I researched it LOL). DD and DS both have gotten Sambucol by mouth since somewhere towards the end of their first year if they got sick. I think the statement is a big old CYA (Cover your Arse)

Yes black elderberry is safe for pregnancy and nursing. Here are two products that say so

If you scroll down mid page or so, you'll see Elderberry-safe for pregnant and lactating women

Really? I have always avoided it during pregnancy because I have read that it is unsafe.

Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!
