Herbs for Tea (preg safe)?

We are going to be ttc in the next few months so I want to make sure my body is ready (or more ready than now). I am currently taking fenugreek daily for milk supply for our 8mo and would like to get off of it and onto a more preg friendly supplement for milk supply before we ttc. These are the herbs I'm going to order to make my own tea, if you have any thoughts on these or additions please let me know!

Red Raspberry Leaf
Nettle Leaf
Alfalfa Leaf
Dandelion Leaf

They are all organic.

I know the Red Raspberry Leaf and Nettle are okay for pregnancy as they're both in my Traditional Medicinals Pregnancy Tea. Not sure one way or the other about the Alfalfa or Dandelion....

My understanding was that you shouldn't have dandelion during pregnancy because it's a diuretic. But I also thought you weren't supposed to have fenugreek during pregnancy.

I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to take fenugreek when prego also (that's why I'm trying to find something safe for when I do get prego again as I will still be nursing DS).

I took dandelion during my last pregnancy - liver support as well as helped with morning sickness.
