Medications during pregnancy

Many medications are safe to take during pregnancy, but some other drugs should be avoided entirely. If you are taking medications essential for your health, it is important to discuss it with your physician.

The first trimester is the time of highest risk for damage from medications because this is the period when fetal cells are rapidly growing, dividing, and forming into organs. There are several types of complications that are known to occur with medications taken during pregnancy, including effects on the growth and development of the fetus, effects on labor and delivery, and other. So it is very important to consult with your doctor to know that medications you take is safe both for you and baby.
