Why Mothers' Medication Matters

by Wendy Jones

Part of the Pinter & Martin Why it Matters Series

Why Mothers' Medication Matters Synopsis

Prescribing medication for breastfeeding women can be complex, and often there are no studies to show whether drugs are safe for lactating women. Yet mothers often need medication: whether short term use of painkillers, mental health drugs, or drugs to treat chronic conditions Wendy Jones gives mothers and those treating them the information they need to make decisions about medication, while allaying fears that many have about adverse effects on babies of drugs passing through breastmilk as well as explaining the cautions on patient information leaflets in all medication boxes. Why Mothers' Medication Matters is a practical, reassuring book that aims to put mothers and babies at the heart of their own care.
