THE SAFETY OF GENERAL ANESTHESIA DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION CAN CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY:

General anesthesia may increase the risk of birth defects, miscarriage, stillbirth, or death of the baby after birth. It also may cause low birth weight or impaired brain development in babies. If possible, general anesthesia should be avoided during pregnancy, especially during the first and third trimesters, unless the benefits outweigh potential risks.
