Taking medications during pregnancy should often be guided by medical advice. But some pregnant women ignore medical advice and embark on self medication which is dangerous not only for the mother but the fetus as well. Remember that no drug is 100 percent safe for all women, so it’s a good idea to check with your doctor or midwife before taking any kind of medicine during pregnancy. Don’t take more than the recommended dose and, if possible, avoid taking anything during your first trimester, when your developing baby is most vulnerable.
