Thus, the present study is justified in need to bring information about the use of herbal medicines and medicinal plants during pregnancy. The study has a qualitative character, being a study of experience report of an activity carried out during the first semester of 2021, with the intention of attending and guiding the pregnant public in the city of Pinheiro, Maranhão, Brazil, on the use of medicinal plants and herbal medicines. As participants in this process, as teachers, students, and preceptors, the importance of this activity was perceived, as the completion of each step allowed the apprehension of theoretical knowledge that will certainly have repercussions in professional practice and demanded the use of tools such as teamwork, interprofessionality and division of tasks. Phytotherapy, as it is a widely popular resource and has numerous benefits to prevent and treat different diseases, should be encouraged to be used. Therefore, it is necessary that its consumption is done in an appropriate and conscious way to reduce possible risks and enhance its benefits.
