PARAC­ETA­MOL

Mother & Baby (UK) - - BUMP & BIRTH -

Some women take parac­eta­mol in early labour. It’s prob­a­bly harm­less, but you might like to think care­fully about how help­ful it will ac­tu­ally be. Parac­eta­mol is known to in­hibit prostaglandin syn­the­sis – and that’s the stuff that in­duces your con­trac­tions. More re­search is needed, but mean­while, un­less you re­ally think it’s go­ing to help, it might be best avoided.
