Hello,

Kelp tablets are herbal tablets that contain a large amount of iodine. Although , there is no definite facts, against using kelp in pregnancy, the tablets have not been analysed for safety either.

I believe that since no study has been carried out about the benefits or risks of kelp, it will be better to avoid it during pregnancy.

I hope this helps.
