I've replied to your post on the prenatel care forum..

here's the link

Everything I've read about EPO (& starflower) suggests that it/they should be avoided from ovulation onwards as may cause uterine contractions.

Flaxseed Oil contains Omega3 as well as GLA (which are present in EPO & starflower) but has higher levels. Flaxseed Oil is safe whilst ttc & during pregnancy.

I would always err on the side of caution when it comes to herbs.

Good luck & take care
Natasha
