The one published study on echinacea in pregnancy didn't find any increased risk for birth defects, but it was too limited to be definitive. Some mothers have however taken it during pregnancy without any adverse effcets.
And since your immune system changes when you're pregnant to give you extra protection against illness, you don't want to take anything that could interfere with that process.
