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?
