Zim/SA - Malaria

Any Zimbo/South Africans who can advise on Malaria?

Thinking of going in September to a malaria area in Zimbabwe, by which time I could be pregnant, and with my daughter who by that time will be 11 months old.

Firstly, are there malaria pills for babies?

Secondly, I know there are malaria pills for pregnant women but are they 100% safe? My Dr was not so keen on giving them to me last time so I postponed trying for a baby until we got back.

What is contra-indicated?
