Pregnancy & breastfeeding

Just like everyone else, pregnant women sometimes need to take medicines.

Sometimes the reason has nothing to do with pregnancy, like headaches, allergies or chronic illness. Sometimes health problems start or get worse when a woman is pregnant, like diabetes, morning sickness or high blood pressure. Sometimes women take medicines before they know that they are pregnant. Often there is not enough evidence to give women trustworthy information about how her particular drug might affect the fetus. This is why women and health-care professionals should always report any medicines taken during pregnancy! Your information can help women make informed decisions about the benefits and risks of different treatments!
