The information included in our pregnancy summaries are designed to facilitate healthcare professionals and their decisions regarding the treatment of women who are pregnant
If you have any questions about any medications or chemicals you have taken or been exposed to please consult your GP, consultant or midwife. Please let them know that we would be happy to provide the latest information they might require to provide the best treatment for you during your pregnancy.
It is important to be aware that 1 in 40 children who are born have a birth defect (2-3%) and 10 to 20 out of every 100 pregnancies end in a miscarriage (10-20%). Birth defects and miscarriages can happen in any pregnancy, even to those who have not taken any medication or been exposed to chemicals.
Any decision to change, stop or take medications in pregnancy should be discussed with your healthcare provider.
