Herbal Safety in Pregnancy and Lactation

Herbal Medicine

Common resources for herbal safety in pregnancy and lactation include Mills & Bone “Essential Guide to Herbal Safety,” and AHPA “Botanical Safety” books.  However, the best resource currently is Dr. Eric Yarnell’s website BotMed.Rocks, which is meant for healthcare providers (and not the lay public).
