Hi Amy - Just to make sure I understand the medication in question correctly - Calci Block - I assume the active ingredient is Nifedipine ?? (I could not verify 100% what the active ingredient is so can you please let me know?)

If that is the case then it is reported to fall into Pregnancy Category C, which states "Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks."

So in other words, this medication should have been recommended at the discretion of your doctor (who should be familiar with your medical history), and it is definitely advisable to work closely with them during your pregnancy to ensure your health and the health of your unborn child.

Hope this helps! Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back if you do...
