Brief Answer:

Safe during pregnancy

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

You can have a moderate amount of moringa leaves during pregnancy but it alone is not sufficient for all the basic needs of pregnancy.

You need to continue taking the iron and calcium supplements as prescribed by your gynaecologist also. It can take care of the micronutrients only.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
