Chicory Root during Pregnancy

Does anyone know how safe it is for pregnant women to consume chicory root?  I started drinking Plum Smart juice (for digestive issues) which is not as nasty as prune juice.  The problem is that it contains Chicory Root in it, which after doing a little reading on it on the net, it doesn't sound like pregnant women should be consuming it, or I found it's in the "unsure category".   It has a natural laxative effect but I guess it promotes menstruation as well which obviously isn't good during pregnancy.  Should I not worry about drinking this since I'm not consuming Chicory Root in large doses or completely avoid it?  Thanks!
