What support systems are there for pregnant women?

What support systems are there for pregnant women?

Start with family: Developing a network for support is similar to developing a network of friends, coworkers. However, a woman who is pregnant is vulnerable in some ways so needs to be more cautious whom she friends irl or using social media. I suggest she not share real names, locations, the due date, plans for delivery, gender of the baby, ultrasound photos, etc. On websites or with people she does not know well.

Why is it prohibited to use ducray anacaps for a pregnant women? And what are the effects for a pregnant women if she uses it?

Why is it prohibited to use ducray anacaps for a pregnant women? And what are the effects for a pregnant women if she uses it?

Lots of unknowns: Ducray anacaps are a "supplement" and are not medications approved by the fda. They are most likely not tested for interactions and side effects like real medicines are. So, that means nobody really knows what side effects there are. If an anacaps user hears of some interaction or thinks she is getting a side effect, she can visit her primary care doctor.
