NSAID Risks: Making Smart Healthcare Decisions During Pregnancy

Updated: Jul 22



Bottom Line:


Pregnant women are certainly not immune to aches and pains. In fact, it's estimated that over 85% of expecting mothers will deal with back pain. Finding relief without the use of medication is almost always the best route for the health of mom and baby. Even over-the-counter medications can be risky to take before and during pregnancy.





Why it Matters:


All medications have side-effects, and these are often heightened during pregnancy. For instance, a drug like acetaminophen has been linked to a greater risk of ADHD and asthma in children. Likewise, NSAIDs have been linked to a 59% increased risk of miscarriage.

  • Finding organic pain solutions before conception and throughout pregnancy is a smart decision.

  • NSAIDs cross from mother to baby easily through the placenta and can influence the production of prostaglandins that promote inflammation.

  • Taking NSAIDs can increase the risks of asthma and hypertension in newborns.

Next Steps:


Talking to your doctor about medication use before becoming pregnant is a smart idea. And if you or someone you know is anticipating pregnancy, it's smart to begin looking for natural, organic solutions for your health issues. We specialize in natural, non-invasive care, and hope you’ll give us a call if you have questions about the best options for you!
