Conclusion

Infections are common during pregnancy. Pharmacists are in a key position to improve both maternal and fetal patient outcomes by counseling the mother on appropriate preventive measures, recommending optimal antimicrobial therapy regimens, and monitoring for adverse effects. Pharmacists must actively work with patients and health care providers to ensure the proper prevention and treatment of infections during pregnancy.
