  • Because it inhibits prostaglandins (natural hormones that influence labor), ibuprofen can also interfere with the normal blood flow within the heart and blood vessels of the baby during the third trimester.

  • They are NSAIDS which are not good for a pregnant woman. You can google it and find out the specifics on why
