welcome to HealthcareMagic
Liv-52 is a ayurvedic preparation prepared from herbs and is safe and will not cause any harm even in pregnancy.It will help you in digestion;acidity;and help to regulate your liver functions.But as for the use to avoid jaundice in new born baby the answer is NO it will not help.The reason is that in all new born the jaundice on the 3 rd day is due to haemolysis (destruction ) of the cord blood and it is replaced by the baby's own blood and being a natural process it cannot be stopped or avoided.Your baby will not have any problem as it is a natural thing and no reason to worry right now.
Take care and all the best.
