Résumé (français)  :

Abstract (English)  :

For many reasons, including the fear of fetal anomaly, the recognition of pregnancy being a normal physiological process and maternal choice, few drugs are prescribed and used during pregnancy. Nevertheless, there are certain common obstetric conditions that are associated with significant maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality where drugs play an important and necessary part in treatment. These conditions include termination of pregnancy, threatened preterm labour, induction of labour and post-partum haemorrhage. This chapter deals with the role of drug therapy in these obstetric scenarios. A large amount of obstetric clinical trial research has been dedicated to the management of these conditions.
