Propolis is a resinous substance made by bees from various plant fragments. Bees add salivary enzymes to their composition and this partially digested material is mixed with wax and used to make the beehive (MARCUCCI, 1995; BANKOVA et al., 2000). She may exhibit varied coloration, such as dark brown, greenish tones and reddish brown.
A recently discovered type in Brazil is the red propolis, originating from the mangrove plant, Dalbergia ecastophyllum (SILVA et al., 2008). However, the one that has gained international prominence is the one produced from the plant Baccharis dracunculifolia (Asteraceae), the green propolis (MARCUCCI, BANKOVA, 1999). Although many studies have been carried out to evaluate the characteristics of several propolis samples, none of them confirmed or allowed any relationship between the chemical composition of propolis and its therapeutic efficacy (BANKOVA, 2005a).
Due to the importance of the biological properties of green propolis, in addition to its wide use. This study aimed to add existing data on the use of propolis during pregnancy, especially warning about the possible risks of using green propolis (Baccharis dracunculifolia) during this period.
