The National Register of Antipsychotic Medication in Pregnancy (NRAMP) - An Essential Update.

Heather Gilbert

The safety of antipsychotic medication use during pregnancy and the subsequent effect on fetal development and neonatal birth outcomes is largely unknown in today’s literature. There is a great need for more informed data on areas of concern, including neonatal respiratory distress, neonatal abstinence syndrome, effects of maternal gestational diabetes and subsequent admissions to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Special Care Nursery (SCN).

The National Register of Antipsychotic Medication in Pregnancy (NRAMP) is an Australia-wide, ongoing, observational research study involving female participants of child-bearing age who take antipsychotic medication during pregnancy. NRAMP will provide comprehensive maternal antipsychotic medication safety data and evidence-based clinical guidelines for improved treatment options and healthy outcomes of babies whose mothers took antipsychotic medication during pregnancy.
