New leaflets on medications in pregnancy

I had the privilege of being part of an excellent training day today for mental health practitioners. One of the hot topics was prescribing during and after pregnancy.

I thought everyone might like to see the BUMPS (Best Use of Medications in Pregnancy) website which produces leaflets for mums and families giving the absolute latest info on the safety of a whole range of meds during pregnancy.

Here's the homepage

Here's the alphabetical list of medication leaflets

The partner site gives the most up-to-date information for health professionals - so this is where you want to go if you fancy printing out a leaflet for your GP or psychiatrist to help educate them about your medication when planning a pregnancy. It's in alphabetical format again, and covers a whole range of medications, not just those used to treat mental health problems.
