If you are a breastfeeding mother, or a pregnant woman thinking about breastfeeding your baby, you may want to find out more about the safety of taking medication whilst breastfeeding.

Fortunately, taking medication does not usually mean that you have to stop breastfeeding temporarily or permanently.

For more information about the use of medication or drugs whilst breastfeeding, click here to go to the Breastfeeding Networks “Drugs in Breastmilk” webpages.

The webpages provide a wide range of useful research-based information, suitable for both mothers and health professionals alike.
