*Having henna applied during a healthy pregnancy is generally safe but it is always a good idea to speak with your doctor. Work with a reputable artist and make sure you know exactly what is being used in the henna paste mixture, it should be simple, natural and smell fresh. Natural henna with lemon juice, sugar and lavender oil is great for pregnant women. Henna should be avoided or used sparingly if you are extremely anemic or the baby has G6PD deficiency.
