Malaria and Pregnancy

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) recently published a leaflet for patients regarding malaria and pregnancy.  Of course our first line of advice should be "do you really need to go?", but sometimes a trip is essential.  In this scenario we must make the traveller fully aware of the risk.  The leaflet is comprehensive, well presented and I would recommend it for all pregnant travellers considering going to a malarious area.  It also has a useful section regarding the traveller who is 'planning to get pregnant'.  Click on the image to access the copy.
