Hi there

You should avoid Evening Primrose Oil & Starflower (Borage) as these can cause uterine contractions. However, Flaxseed Oil contains Omega3 & GLA & is perfectly safe to take whilst ttc & throughout pregnancy. There is a thread with more info on either the prenatel care forum.

Good luck & take care ^reiki^

Hi ya,

I take the Fish Oils from www.highernature.co.uk as they are cheaper and I also take 1000mg of Flaxseed Oil too.

Good luck,

Charlie xx
