Is VSL3 safe to use during pregnancy? I'm assuming it would be, but just want to be sure. Thanks!

Hi Ali
 
My first reaction was that it would be totally safe to take.  I just did a quick google search and it seems safe, and even a good idea, for pregnant women to take a probiotic (regardless of whether they have UC).

Thank you! I noticed that article as well...I wouldn't see how it could be harmful either.
