It depends on what they're for. This would be a question for your doctor, not cafe mom.

it is, but make sure you let the hospital know that you have them.  they will take them from you, send them to the lab to confirm that it's what you say it is, then let you have them when it's your normal dose time.

I have bipolar disorder, and the same day I gave birth was the same day I started my meds back up.  I sure didn't need a heaping helping of PPD to add to my problems.

I continued taking my medication while at the hospital at my normal time, my midwife knew about my meds. I chose to formula feed because I didn't want the meds in her system
