Canadian Regulation on Fetal Exposure to Psychotropic Drugs – Public Input Needed (Cross-Posted on The Bitter Pill blog)

Amery and Christiane Schultz have been asked to provide input on proposed recommendations regarding psychotropic drugs in pregnancy in Canada. Amery & Christiane are hard-working activists affiliated with UNITE and MADNAP. Please send any comments you may have to amy@uniteforlife.org by Thursday of this week (November 10, 2011), or call 817-793-8028.

See the following note from Amery:

I am looking for input as to what you feel should be included in recommendations for establishing protocols surrounding women being treated with and babies exposed to psychotropic medications during pregnancy. These recommendations will be presented to both the Canadian Pediatric Association as well as the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada. We have found a good ally who is proposing that we address the National Conference of the Canadian Pediatric Association.

My friend and fellow activist Ellen Liversidge (who lost her son Rob to Zyprexa-induced hyperglycemia) has generously allowed me to confiscate over two dozen of her vintage quilts to sell. She runs a business selling them, so we will be accepting all small to extravagant offers above cost for the sale of these quilts! I’ve set up a Flickr account and blog to showcase the quilts. Minimum prices on the quilts will be posted soon. If you see one that you want please email me at amy@uniteforlife.org so we can get it shipped to you.

 

 

Many thanks to the following donors:

Peek Aren’t You Curious at Northpark Mall (gift bags)

Jenny M Jewels (hand-made earrings)

Christian Delahunty (baby quilts, hand-made jewelry and more)

Amery & Christiane Schultz (MADNAP Teddy Bears)

 

 

We are also going to be handing out pink and blue ribbons in honor of October – Infant Loss Awareness Month.
