Can maternal use of antibiotics affect baby in the womb at early pregnancy?

Antibiotic/pregnancy: Absolutely. And that list goes beyond antibiotics. For example, we do not give a mother certain antibiotics, such as sulfa drugs, as it can affect the fetus' development.

"a" being safe to "x" being no. ...Read more

Encourage her to 'fess up, for her baby's sake & to get addiction counseling. ...Read more
