NSAIDS (Anti-inflammatories) and Pregnancy
“Risk of adverse birth outcome and miscarriage in pregnant users of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: Population based observational study and case-control study”.
In this study researchers investigated 4,268 women who had miscarriages, 29,750 women who had live births and 1,462 women in Denmark who had taken prescription NSAID medication during their pregnancies, or during the 30 days prior to conception.
The report, published in the British Medical Journal published in 2001 demonstrated that pregnant women who take anti-inflammatories increase their risk of miscarriage.
NSAID use was significantly associated with an increased risk of miscarriage.

The message with this study is clear:
do not take drugs…any drugs…during pregnancy.
Chiropractic… the natural drug free alternative.
