While many medications can safely be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding, it always helps to ensure that you are on the safest medication and at the correct dose. Mothersafe provides an excellent, free counselling service for women of NSW. Mothersafe also provides fact sheets on safe medications and self help for common pregnancy complaints, such as nausea, haemorrhoids, constipation, and management of cold and flu. Most cold and flu preparations are safe in pregnancy.
