I think that if basil really was dangerous to eat in pregnancy, we would be advised not to eat it by the obstetricians, hospitals etc - in they way that they advise us not to eat listeria foods, liver etc.

Herbs are weird. I eat basil from my garden daily lol and mint, rosemary, oregano, etc.
Some herbs like cloves are safe when baked with but not in essential oil form. Lavender surprised me. I had lavender tea every day my first tri but since learned the oil can cause contractions. Maybe something about how concentrated it is?
Basil is really good for you and pesto on wholemeal pasta is one of the healthiest things a pregnant woman can eat!
