I have a friend interested in taking valerian. She is about 13 or 14 weeks pregnant. I've looked it up a little, but can't seem to find a definite answer. I know I have the Wise Woman's Herbal for the Childbearing Year by Susun Weed, but am unable to find it at the moment.<br><br>
So what do you think, should she take it or not? Can you post a link so I can look at a website?<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br>

From what I know it is safe in pregnancy. I took it several times during my 3 rd trimester w/ my last pg, and I took it about 3 x in the first trimester this pregnancy. I've never really heard any contraindications for valerian during pg, it's a pretty gentle, safe herb.
