"A welcome edition to an already thorough reference...succinct texts such as this are invaluable and worthy of a spot on a bookshelf of any health care practitioner who advises pregnant or lactating women." - Myla Moretti, Motherisk Program, Toronto, Ontario, in CANADIAN JOURNAL OF HOSPITAL PHARMACY "The best feature of this book is its thorough coverage of how medications pass into breast milk and the way it takes into consideration the differences posed by infant age and maturity. Lists of drug therapies accompanied with recommendations regarding therapy choice and safe alternatives, are especially helpful. The appendixes are a highlight of this book, providing practitioners with a wealth of listed resources. This book is highly recommended to all clinicians working in the areas of obstetrics, pediatrics, and lactation. It offers more specific recommendations regarding treatment options than a similar book, Hale's Medications and Mothers Milk, 12th edition (Hale Publishing, 2006)...[Schaefer] is a great addition to the clinician's library. This second edition contains major revisions with many sections completely rewritten, and the price is lower, making the book available to a greater readership." --Doody "The book comes with a nifty accessibility enhancer, a laminated pocket card with a table of risk/safety attributes of commonly used medications. The availability of information in such a compact and pocket-friendly form will be very popular with some clinicians...The contributors to this book have done a very nice job...An important feature of Drugs During Pregnancy and Lactation. Treatment options and risk assessment is the inclusion of recommendations for most medications or groups of medications. The recommendations are set forth in a shaded box for easy visibility and will be appreciated by clinicians looking for clear answers.

Scialli, M.D., Reproductive Toxicology Center, Bethesda, MD
