The present study was conducted at Alzahra teaching hospital from March 2016 to August 2017to explore the pattern of herbal use during pregnancy in Guilan province, north of Iran. Data from 836 eligible women who were interviewed at postnatal ward were analyzed .We found that 19.6% of them consumed herbs during pregnancy. The most commonly used herbs were mint, flixweld and cinnamon andthe mostcommon indications were gastrerointistinal complications and cold. The rate of herbal consumption in pregnancy was related to education (P=0.001) and resistance (P=0.008) but not to age (P=0.203), employment (P=0.255) and gravity(P=0.935).Although the results of this study were better than some others but due to the importance of the issue it is vital that health care providers be open to question of herbal use during pregnancy.
