The author, Ron Batagol is a Melbourne-based pharmacist who has worked in all areas of pharmacy practice including clinical, management, and obstetric drug information, and has, over the past 30 years, researched, lectured and written Reference Guides on the safety of drugs in pregnancy for doctors, pharmacists and other health professionals. Ron strongly believes that it is important for women to be able to easily access clearly written and accurate information to enable them to be fully informed of the expert consensus of safety issues, when they discuss their own situation with their doctors, regarding the use of medications in pregnancy. In this book, he has used the descriptive approach, written in plain English, which he believes is the best way to achieve this, which will also overcome the anxiety and confusion which is generated by the current alphabetical pregnancy risk classification system used in Australia and elsewhere.

by Ron Batagol
Ever since the Thalidomide tragedy half a century ago, pregnant women have, too often, been given conflicting and often confusing advice from friends or from distorted media reports as to the safety of various chemicals and medicines. Often such medicines may be recommended for treating medical conditions that they have, such as epilepsy, high blood pressure or diabetes.
