Propolis during pregnancy: what is good to know
Studies concerning propolis and its use are still too few to be able to give an exhaustive answer to the question about propolis in pregnancy that is bad for the baby .
Generally speaking, many doctors are of the opinion that if the mother is not allergic, she can use it in small quantities and only using non-spray and alcohol-free propolis. However, propolis has such an absorption capacity that it could cross the placenta. This can happen especially in the first three months of pregnancy . For this reason, from July 2022, the Ministry of Health has decided to insert the words “Do not take during pregnancy” on propolis packages.
In this regard, therefore, the use is to be considered contraindicated, unless the attending physician and the gynecologist, who knowing the patient’s situation, will be able to give targeted advice.
