    A recent study has found that the risks of a premature birth quadruple if flaxseed oil is consumed in the last two trimesters of pregnancy. The correlation existed only with flaxseed oil. Women consuming the actual seed were unaffected.

    "We believe these products to be safe because they are natural. But in reality, they are chemical products and we don’t know many of the risks and benefits of these products contrarily to medication," says Anick Bérard of the University of Montreal’s Faculty of Pharmacy.

    The most consumed supplements pregnant women consumed were:
    * Chamomile 19%
    * Green Tea 17%
    * Peppered Mint 12%
    * Flaxseed Oil 12 %

    Yes,I absolutely agree with your post..The risk of premature birth quadruple by consuming flax seed oil in the last two trimesters of pregnancy.so during pregnancy,flax seed oil should not be consumed which increase the risk of bleeding during pregnancy.
