Introduction to the pharmacokinetics of drugs in breastmilk for midwives

I am all too aware of the gaps which many professionals find in their knowledge after training. That is why we all need to undertake CPD. I have written this brief introduction for midwives who see mothers during their pregnancy and after delivery. Midwives are often more accessible than medics, they may be seen as more approachable, they care about as well as for, women throughtout their career, they help to train junior doctors. So I hope this will help them to understand more about how drugs pass into breastmilk and where to seek more information if needed. Happy to provide training via Microsoft Teams if you wish and to answer any emails. Wendy@breastfeeding-and-medication.co.uk.

Hope this is useful but please feedback if you need more, less, more details, any changes. And dont for get the books!
