Why Mothers' Medication Matters
Prescribing medication for breastfeeding mothers who need it can be complex; there may be little or no research indicating the safety of some drugs for the breastfeeding dyad.
As a result mothers often receive innaccurate or downright incorrect advice to stop breastfeeding (either temporarily or permanently) in order to receive medication, with no consideration that weaning not an easy, necessarily safe or straightforward process.
In this compact but comprehensive book Wendy Jones gives breastfeeding mothers and those treating them the information they need to make considered decisions about medications. Why Mothers’ Medications Matter provides practical, reassuring information on a wide range of medical conditions and medications, empowering breastfeeding mothers and their supporters to make informed decisions about appropriate care.
