Safety of medication

Your doctor will recommend pregnancy vitamins and supplements to be taken during the duration of pregnancy.

There are many medications that are unsafe to take when you are pregnant. Even some over-the-counter medications such as cold and flu medications can be harmful to your baby.

Never take any medication that your doctor hasn’t prescribed whilst you are pregnant. Always check with him or her first.
