Why organic tea is a must during pregnancy
When you are pregnant, you want to know what you are putting into your body. Some herbal teas have other ingredients that are unsafe. Organic, although more expensive, is safer!
They use only the one ingredient so you know what you are drinking. Again though, always double check with your OBGYN. At your appointment show them the tea you would like to start and see if they give you the all clear.
It helps your OBGYN make a quick decision too, when the ingredients list is small so they can give you an answer right away.
