But first, let's talk about the incredible benefits of Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) during pregnancy. Known for its ability to support hormone balance and liver health, this natural plant ally is a game-changer. Milk Thistle's star component, Silymarin, works wonders on the liver, which plays a crucial role in hormonal equilibrium.
During pregnancy, maintaining liver health is vital for hormonal balance. Your liver acts as a filter, removing toxins from your body. Surprisingly, hormones can fall into the toxin category when they are in excess. As blood passes through the liver, it eliminates hormones, drugs, and other substances. The liver converts these waste products into inactive forms and directs them to the kidneys for excretion. However, if the liver becomes overwhelmed by an excess of toxins and hormones, imbalances can occur, leading to feelings of fatigue, discomfort, and even morning sickness.
The benefits of Milk Thistle don't stop there. This remarkable plant also aids digestion by stimulating the liver and gallbladder to produce bile. Additionally, it has been found to alleviate depression and may offer support in preventing the baby blues. And for breastfeeding mothers, Milk Thistle can help maintain a consistent breast milk supply.
Why should Milk Thistle Seed be a part of your pregnancy plan? Here are the highlights:
1. Stimulates liver regeneration and cleansing.
2. Flushes excess hormones and toxins from the liver.
3. Supports the liver in healing from various assaults.
4. May aid in reversing insulin resistance and related disorders.
5. Increases breast milk production.
6. Can help ease depression and prevent postpartum baby blues.
When it comes to incorporating Milk Thistle into your routine, herbalists generally recommend using no more than 30 drops of milk thistle tincture, diluted in water, 2-3 times a day. It is considered safe for long-term use, and no harmful effects have been reported in pregnant women or animal studies. However, if you have allergies to plants in the Daisy/Compositae family, it's best to avoid milk thistle.

I’m an inclusive, not scary, totally normal yet heavily qualified yoga instructor and founder of YogaBellies® and the Birth ROCKS Method. I’m trained in self hypnosis and meditation and what I love is helping women (ALL women) enjoy yoga without having to whisper all the time and wear fancy activewear that cost a month’s rent.
I believe Yoga is for everyone.
