    Hi Alex

    My understanding is that Goldenseal is not considered safe during pregnancy due to its toxicity. It is also not recommended during breastfeeding. You might find this article interesting: Inducing Labour Naturally

    Hi Alex - Welcome to the forum. The research on herbal preparations in pregnancy is very lacking. We do not know the safety of many herbs. The current recommendation in the majority of the literature is that goldenseal is a herb that should be avoided in pregnancy.
