Rural Health Seminar Series- Complementary Medicine Use in Pregnancy and Lactation

Rural Health Seminar Series- Complementary Medicine Use in Pregnancy and Lactation

This seminar will be provided via Zoom

Date: Thursday 17th September

Time: 4:00pm – 5:00pm

CLICK TO REGISTER

Pregnant and breastfeeding women commonly use complementary medicine products (CMPs) including dietary supplements and herbal medicines. This mixed-methods research investigated pregnant and breastfeeding women’s use of CMPs, and specifically focused on women’s CMPs information-seeking behaviours, information sources, and types of information sought. Factors that influenced women’s decision-making, including health literacy, were also examined. Results show that establishing the safety and benefits of CMP use were central to women’s decision-making. Participants had good health literacy skills. They aimed to promote and maintain the health of their babies and themselves, making their decisions in line with the concept of maternal health literacy. They sought information widely but were discerning when evaluating the information collated. Women’s most trusted sources of CMPs information were health care practitioners, government and hospital information, and published research.
