I wasn't sure if this ought to go in the pregnancy forum or if here would be fine, but it seems like I could maybe reach maximum amounts of health gurus here. =)
Does anyone have any solid information one way or the other about the safety of soil based probiotics during pregnancy? Google is turning up a lot of advertisements and anecdata, but I can't find anything really definitive one way or the other.
I've taken probiotics daily for a couple of years, usually the pearls. I've never taken the HSO kind before. I ran out of pearls and almost immediately started having with my stomach. My husband picked up a bottle of the Primal Defense probiotics by Garden of Life for me tonight because it was supposed to be the best. It's a ridiculous sized bottle, I think it's got 90 in it, but I'm a little concerned about taking it while pregnant.
I took HSO probiotics throughout both of my pregnancies - both times ok'd by my midwives.
What specifically are you concernedd about?
I think you will be hard pressed to find any concrete studies concerning this as there is very little out there about probiotiocs in pregnancy in general.
