Unknown effects: Many herbs have "associations" with birth defects or miscarriages, which means that people taking them had those problems. That doesn't necessarily mean that the herb caused them because some birth defects or miscarriages happen spontaneously. However, general pregnancy recommendations are to avoid anything that might harm your baby until checking with your doctor, including herbs.
