From my herbal encyclopedia:
Chicory - is considered... to be a mild tonic, diuretic and laxative.
If you're eating raddicchio or endive or Treviso, those are all chicory.
Chicory root has a very high level of folic acid, and the leaves have a high level of potassium.
Hawthorn - Scientists have discovered that hawthorn dilated blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more freely and thus lowering blood pressure. In addition, it acts directly on the heart muscle to help a damaged heart work more efficiently. Hawthorn works slowly and appears to be toxic only in large doses...
In the 3 herbal books I just consulted, none of them said anything about avoiding either of these herbs during pregnancy.
