Hi! The fear and worry of pregnancy and to top it antibiotics trying to harm your!

Fear not! Cefixime is a category B pregnancy drug that has shown absolutely no the foetus i.e. the baby in your womb. You can safely take that drug and get rid of your infection and carry.on with your normal pregnancy.

Happy Parenting!
