No.: No. Remember the morning sickness and other weird stuff in early pregnancy? Nature has already prepped your body to keep you and the baby healthy.

Shouldn't need to: What do you have in your system to detox? There isn't any "detox-medication" available by prescription because there is no such thing. Be best/healthiest way is to stop ingesting "toxic substances" if you are doing so, eat well, exercises and the body will heal/detox itself. Don't put chemicals in your body if you don't need to. Be good. Live well, live healthy. Congrats on the pregnancy. Good luc.
