A clear, practical guide to help every pregnant woman weigh up the risks and benefits of taking commonly prescribed and over-the-counter drugs, of ‘everyday drugs’ such as caffeine and alcohol, of ‘street drugs’, and drugs which are commonly offered during pregnancy.
• Drawing on up to date research as well as women’s actual experiences, this book will help you decide:
Which drugs do more good than harm, before conception, during pregnancy, and during labour.
The consequences of taking or refusing a particular drug, and it will help you live with the decisions.
