Can anyone tell me if it's OK to take probiotics while pg?

Also, I know I need to take zinc, and the one supplement I have also contains echinacea. I thought I remember hearing that you shouldn't take echinacea while pg. Is that true?

TIA!

I am continuing with my probiotics regime. From what I understand it is great to take probiotics while pg If you are a bit concerned you could get the kids version - Rhino makes powdered probiotics for kids and we add it to our smoothies.

I have heard about the echinacea but don't know for sure you may want to look into that one. I would think a low dose would be fine. I know at WF you can get just zinc or zinc with elderberry.

Thanks Keri!

Glad to know I can continue with the probiotics. They reall help my system stay regular and I get less nausea/heartburn that way.

What a relief!

Take care.

I was just wondering the same thing. I have been taking probiotics for just over a month.
