Mums, Pregnancy and Homeopathy

One of the main reasons for families starting to use homeopathy is during pregnancy. Conventional  Medical drugs have been consistently damaging pregnant women since Thalidomide, and they continue to do so. Big Pharma don't appear to give a damn, and sadly, GPs continue to prescribe drugs either in ignorance that they can do harm, or not bothering to find out.

As WDDTY have said recently, there is no such thing as a safe drug for a pregnant woman, and virtually every prescription drug could cause birth defects. Yet as they go on to say, doctors are prescribing an ever-increasing number of drugs to women, often ignoring official warnings. This is according to a recently published survey that discovered many women were taking up to 4 different drugs. The survey found that 80% of pregnant women were taking some form of drug, an increase of 60% over the past 30 years.

Clearly, the drug companies, GPs, and the entire Conventional Health Establishment has learnt little since Thalidomide!

The study was done by researchers from Boston University Stone Epidemiology Centre, after reviewing a survey of 30,000 women. (Source: American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 2011; doi: 10.1016/j.ajog.2011.02.029).


The WDDTY feature is at

and it is interesting to see their previous articles on this subject. They include articles on antibiotics causing birth defects, Prozac babies have birth defects, Antidepressant drugs cause birth defects, Fertility drugs and birth defects. And one that comes to this conclusion:


"Women who are very young or pregnant are two population groups who should almost never be prescribed general pharmaceuticals.

WDDTY are doing a great service in warning us all about the dangers of pharmaceutical drugs at this critical time. But rather than worrying, mums should relax, and get in touch with a local homeopath to make sure she has safe treatment available to her should she need medical treatment.
