i use a mixture of black and blue to induce herbally. I don't know of any other reason that I'd suggest black cohosh in late pregnancy. As a matter of fact, I would probably tell my client to avoid it, but that's me. The exception to this suggestion would be when it's included in preparations like 5W that you start taking about 36 weeks, because it's really a small enough amount that it wouldn't cause any problems.

I guess MAYBE someone MIGHT suggest it as a tonic, but there are much safer ones out there.

A midwife friend of mine recommended 5W and I was looking at the ingredient list. I had thought that cohosh should be avoided during pregnancy, so that's why I asked. Sounds like it is okay, though. Thanks!
