A pain in the pregnancy

Acetaminophen (pain drugs like Tylenol), are short-term pain relievers with LONG-TERM consequences – especially to the developing fetus. A new study suggests that a 28 day use of acetaminophen during pregnancy can increase adverse effects on child development. Children exposed to acetaminophen for over 28 days during pregnancy had poorer gross motor skills, poor communication skills and more behavioral problems and the same but weaker trend was found with acetaminophen taken for less than 28 days. The study tested about 3,000 children at 3 years of age to figure this out. Our first choice for pain relief should automatically be something natural rather than reaching for the Tylenol. Oh, and stop doing what hurt us in the first place.
