Can I eat thyme or rosemary while pregnant?

13-14 weeks pregnant, Health advice

My name is Maxime, and I love thyme and rosemary. On some websites, I read that these herbs can be neurotoxic. Is this true? I hope to continue using them on my pizza and in my sauces during my pregnancy. Maxime


Hello Maxime,

After checking, it’s safe to use thyme and rosemary in your diet during pregnancy. However, avoid infusing these spices. Thyme has been shown to have undesirable effects. There are no studies on rosemary. Avoid them in herbal teas, but no problem for your pizza! 😊
