I have never heard any contraindication for moderate amounts RRL tea in pregnancy, except in the case of allergies. It can cause contractions, but only in large amounts and in more concentrated form (such as in a tincture or extract). I drink NORA tea which is a blend of nettle, oat straw, raspberry leaf, and alfalfa; I have also added lemon balm for hypertension and stevia for a little sweetness (I do NOT like herbal teas). I drink a quart daily.

If you enjoy herbal teas it is a simple matter to research the herbs in the blend you enjoy to see if it is safe. The teas you buy at a grocery or health food store are not likely to be of medicinal strength or quality.
