Are there adequate and well-controlled studies on the herbs and alternative meds?

There were none on the drugs I took because it’s unethical to test on pregnant women. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t gathering evidence of safety or otherwise, so physicians can give women a good idea of what needs to be done.

I can’t begin to say how much medication I needed – steroids, anti-biotics, anti-emetics, various asthma meds which were off-license doses because they were so high – unresearched obviously.

We have to balance so many things to keep our precious cargo safe and that includes being able to manage debilitating conditions that may have us wander out in front of a car while we’re pregnant.
