See the contribution by local woman, Emma Friedmann, to an article by Sue Reid in The Daily Mail about the effects of taking the drug Sodium Valproate during pregnancy. Emma speaks about her experience and the effects on her son Andy.
In the article Sue Reid says:
“… campaigners and researchers say that of the 48,000 children born to mothers in the UK who have taken the drug since it was introduced in 1973, 40 per cent — a massive 19,200 — have developed physical or mental problems.”
