Due to my anxiety I have been offered Diazepam to take the morning of my elective C-Section but am concerned as to the effect on baby.
I am looking at a 2mg (maybe slightly more if necessary) dose. I have previously taken this medication so I know it is effective however to be blunt, i feel i am polluting baby and i feel distressed about this. Have you used it in this context and if so were there any side effects with baby?

Just to end, we used Lorazepam, advice from breast feeding network, baby straight to boob, Nov 2017.
