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.

So what do you think, should she take it or not? Can you post a link so I can look at a website?

Thanks!

Margaret

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.
