Jen Christensen at News Anchor Mom here in Peoria has an important piece of news for all mothers and women of child-bearing years:
I am certain I was told by my OBGYN eight years ago that I could only take Tylenol for pain relief-not ibuprofen(Motrin) or Aleve. I think that has been well known for awhile by people in the industry. However, it's something first time moms may not realize until they go to the doctor. By that time, they may be 8 weeks pregnant and the damage could already be done. So, I think it's great that more women may be notified of this study before they get pregnant.

They include ibuprofen, sold under brand names including Motrin and Advil, and naproxen, sold as Aleve. They already carry warnings against use late in pregnancy. But the study out today by Dr. Anick Berard and her team and the University of Montreal shows that taken EARLY in pregnancy -- during the first first twenty weeks -- the drugs may more than double the risk of miscarriage.
