Pregnant Mother Can Drink Herbal Medicine
Doc..want to ask pregnant women to drink herbal medicine made from ginger, turmeric and brown sugar? Pregnancy age 7m
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Consumption of ginger and brown sugar is safe for pregnant women, especially for ginger, safe if it is still below 1500 grams per day. But for turmeric, this plant should not be given to pregnant women.
This is because there are certain ingredients in turmeric that can make pregnant women experience contractions in the uterus. This can make the baby born prematurely, or even make a miscarriage for those who are still a small gestational age. So we suggest that you should avoid consuming herbs that contain turmeric, and replace them with other methods that are safer to maintain endurance, such as regular breaks, taking multivitamins and pregnancy supplements, and routinely check for pregnancy to your obstetrician. So, hopefully answering your question.
