this is what i found, The essential oil should not be used internally by children, women who are pregnant or breast-feeding, or people with liver or kidney disease.(that is just talking about the oil) i also found this,
Pregnancy teas sold in health food stores and in the natural products sections of markets usually include ingredients such as strawberry leaf, lemon grass leaf, nettle leaf, alfalfa, fennel seed, rosehips, and lemon verbena all safe. But to be sure, check the ingredients.and also i found this at another site, If it's summer, experiment with your own iced tea blends. In addition to varieties of green and white tea, rosehips, spearmint, lemongrass, ginger and fennel infusions are thought to be particularly helpful for pregnancy. Boil your blend with water and some sugar or honey, and then add to cold water and ice cubes until it's the strength you prefer, Avoid the following herbs during pregnancy:
goldenseal
sage
rosemary
thyme
parsley
tarragon.
i also found this, it comes from a bookOver time, if a pregnant woman drinks the tea, it may be helpful in reducing mutations during the formation of human embryos, so as you can see i'm now very confused.

oh also babyfit has a section on tea and what's safe in the research section. Just type in tea and it will pull up. Its best to stick with the stuff you know and is pretty common like ginger etc.

Just type in lemongrass in the search engine almost every site said it was not safe. Also, I had bought a tea with lemongrass in it and when I saw the information I decided not to drink it and asked Becky if it was safe and she said it wasn't.
