Weleda Pregnancy Statement

Weleda products have a long history of use over many decades with many millions of people having taken them under their doctor’s supervision throughout the world.

Scientific literature is also monitored for information about possible contraindications during pregnancy. On this basis, it is our judgement that there is as yet no known reason to indicate that any of our commonly available Weleda preparations, may harm the developing foetus. However, in common with nearly all herbal and homeopathic medicines, no Weleda products have been tested on pregnant animals or people to prove their safety. Therefore Weleda does not claim that any product is safe to use during pregnancy.

We undertake to provide label warnings on any product where there is any suspicion that more than the general caution outlined below should be taken during pregnancy. Weleda supports the widely used cautious recommendation that the only medicines taken during pregnancy are those where the risk of taking the medicine have been weighed-up against the risk of the medical condition by the mother-to-be and their health care professional.
