1. Ginseng

Herbalist Rebekah Epling said:

“Technically, you’ll be making a decoction. For a ginseng tea decoction, use approximately a quarter ounce of dried ginseng root per one cup of water. Bring the water to a boil, add ginseng, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. Then strain the water, and you’ve got ginseng tea!”

Be warned, however, that ginseng is not recommended for pregnant women.

2. Cordyceps

Although there is no study to show that cordyceps can cause any threat to a pregnant woman’s health, it is better for them to steer clear of cordyceps until more research proves its safety.

3. Maca Root

5. Turmeric
To use turmeric, simply add it like a regular spice to your favorite dishes and drinks.

6. Goji Berries

Backe said:

“Goji berries especially have gotten more popular in recent years, being labeled [a] superfood by those who spread the buzz. They contain unsaturated fatty acids, beta-carotene, lycopene, and a long list of trace minerals.”
