Medications and Pregnancy

Did You Know?
May 2, 2014
  • Nearly 9 out of 10 pregnant women in the United States take at least one medication.
  • Because pregnant women are often excluded from medication studies, there islimited information about medication safety during pregnancy. Only 9% of medications have enough information to determine their risk to the baby, making treatment decisions difficult.
  • CDC’s prescription for this problem—Treating for Two—is a national strategy to improve the health of mothers and babies through safer medication use in pregnancy.
