Tulsi Tea During Pregnancy - Should I Have or Not?

Tulsi is a wonder herb which when consumed daily helps maintain overall good health and prevents diseases. Tulsi has been consumed for years.

You will find a lot of friends and family may suggest Tulsi Tea when you have vomiting, indigestion and back pain, symptoms you typically experience during pregnancy.

You might want to wait till you consult your gynaecologist before sipping those cups though. There is not much research available on how exactly Tulsi might affect pregnancy.

There are some studies which suggest that Tulsi stimulates the blood flow to the uterus and pelvic area which may lead to contractions. This also may result in bleeding during or after surgery like a Caesarean Section or even in Normal Delivery where there is a chance of you having an episiotomy.

But what do you do when you really are yearning for a cup of tea to relax and recharge yourself? Well, choose a safer option maybe, like

  • Ginger Tea – Good for digestion and a cure for colds.
  • Peppermint Tea – Cure for morning sickness, heartburn and diarrhoea.
  • Red Raspberry Leaf Tea – Stimulates the uterine walls thus making labour a little easier.

It never is a good idea to mess around with your diet and pregnancy is certainly not a time to be taking chances. So wait for that go ahead from your gynaecologist.
