From a renowned obstetrician and expert in maternal-fetal medicine comes the only comprehensive pharmaceutical guide available to help you make informed decisions while pregnant and nursing

Sometimes even physicians disagree or appear confused about what medications are appropriate choices for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Tylenol? Ambien? Sudafed? A prescription medication for a chronic condition? How much is OK and when? Incomplete or misinformation, an out-dated FDA classification system, and fear all stand in the way. Which means taking care of your health during this important time of your life can feel scarier than it should.

The Complete Guide to Medications During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding cuts through the confusion so that you can feel good about taking care of yourself and your baby. This essential reference combines authority and empathy with an A-to-Z directory of more than six hundred drugs to help you make the best possible decisions for you and your baby.
