Creating a bumps record
By creating and updating a bumps record of your pregnancy you are contributing to our understanding of how medicines affect the health of pregnant women and their babies, both in the womb or later on in life.
Our aim is to help women to make decisions regarding use of medicines in pregnancy that are best for both mother and baby.
To do this, information needs to be collected not only from women who took medicines for a pre-pregnancy health problem (whether they continue, change or stop that medicine) or for a specific pregnancy related problem, but also from women who did not use medicines in pregnancy.
Women around the world are faced with difficult decisions about taking medicines in pregnancy on a daily basis, sometimes for a serious illness. We know from these women and their healthcare providers how important information from even a few other women can be, especially for new or rarely used medicines.
Please note: The bumps record is a new development. We would be grateful if you would please let us know if you experience any problems using it.
