warfarin pille in 'n swangerskap

My friendin is nou 7amper 8maande swanger. Toe sy so 5en1/2 maande swanger was het sy 'n bloedklont in haar lies gekry. Die dokters het haar op warfarin pille gesit... Is dit goed vir haar en die baba? Mag sy dit gebruik? Is daar enige newe effekte vir die baba? Help asseblief. Ons het 'n artikel gekry wat gese het die pille is nie goed vir die baba nie...

The most risky period for the baby is the first 12 weeks where the organs are being formed. Thereafter if the warfarin levels are not well controlled, it can cause bleeding in the baby, but at this late stage of pregnancy, it is probably better to carry on. She should be changed to heparin a few weeks before going into labour.
