Yes: Unknown, it was accidentally discovered while developing a pesticide. Rat studies only showed an imbalance in bowel flora. Humans report migraines being triggered. I recommend as natural as possible in pregnancy.
Dr. James Ferguson

Yes: There is no evidence that it has any negative effects during pregnancy.
