    Hi Friends,

    For my 1st pregnancy I never took Saffron. But for this time around I am planning to take. But I have minimal knowledge about it or how to take it coz none in our family have eaten saffron when pregnant.

    I am 9 weeks pregnant right now, please let me know

    1. When or which month should I start taking Saffron ?
    2. What should be the quantity ?
    3. Should it be dissolved in milk or water ?
    4. Should it be taken until delivery once started ?

    Thanks,
    Mellow

    Hey Mellow,

    Congratulations on your pregnancy.....:cheers
    Saffron during pregnancy is beneficial but since it is heaty..you need to avoid it until 6months...

    1. When or which month should I start taking Saffron ?
    A. Start from 7th Month onwards to be on safer side..(this is what my grandmother suggested)
    2. What should be the quantity ?
    A. 2-3 strands maximum in a day
    3. Should it be dissolved in milk or water ?
    A. Heat little water and dissolved saffron strands in it...and then add to milk
    4. Should it be taken until delivery once started ?
    A. I have no idea but will continue till end.

    Right now I am on 8th month and I started having it since my 7th month start...I think we can continue until delivery...Saffron has medicinal benefits that's why it is advised during pregnancy....

    Hi Mellow
    You can take saffron from the fifth month onwards. I took it like that and by luck or fluke gave birth to a very fair boy.
    two or three strands of saffron dissolved in milk. i took mine with horlicks
    i took till i delivered

    well even I started from 5th month. I was asked to take it only on the day I take headbath. before going for headbath I used to soak saffron in warm milk and after headbath I used to squeeze those saffrons and drink that milk. I followed it till I delivered. I was told the baby will be fair if I follow this and luckily my kid is fair.
    I am not sure where we get good quality saffron in india. if u guyz have some relatives in USA/Dubai etc u can ask them to send it, because I feel the quality is definetly better abroad.

    Well, I started taking it sometime after my first trimester. As others said, I let a few strands soak in warm milk and consumed it. It is great for blood circulation! Not sure about the whole 'fair baby' hype :)
