Pregnancy can be fraught with worry, and there is nothing that causes more concern than the effects of drug use. The terrible side effects developing babies suffered due to medicines such as Thalidomide, Accutane and diethylstilbestrol (DES) have made many women wary of taking any medication during pregnancy. Fortunately, most medications are safe in pregnancy but their use is a balance of risks and benefits.

It is always better to be safe than sorry. Talk to your doctor or health care provider before taking any drug or naturopathic remedy during pregnancy.

There are a number of tests and vaccinations you will be offered throughout your pregnancy. These tests screen for certain diseases, antibodies, genetic and chromosomal abnormalities and infections in the mother. The development of the fetus will also be monitored during these tests to ensure your pregnancy is progressing as it should. This section will give you information about the various tests and vaccinations that are available to you in each trimester of your pregnancy.

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, it has become increasingly clear that COVID-19 hits pregnant women harder than the general population. Now, one of the first large studies with a proper control group has firmed up earlier evidence for how the virus can alter the course of pregnancy and harm mothers and their newborns.

The study of more than 2100 pregnant women enrolled at hospitals in 18 countries found that, compared with uninfected pregnant women, those with COVID-19 are at higher risk for severe illness, death, pregnancy complications, and preterm birth. Those results underscore the importance of including pregnant women in priority groups for COVID-19 vaccines and limiting their exposure to ill people, says corresponding author Aris Papageorghiou, a fetal medicine specialist at the University of Oxford.
