Re: “Medicines and breastfeeding: information is available on safe use”, by Lisa H Amir, in the 7 May issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2007; 186: 485). In the editing process, the last two sentences of the letter were altered, including removal of the author’s original emphasis on several words. The sentences should read “Medicines used during pregnancy are given safety ratings and the information is available online.5 Australian clinicians need similar guidance in relation to safe prescribing for breastfeeding women.” The author’s position at La Trobe University was also incorrectly given as “Lactation Consultant” rather than “Health Professional Research Fellow”. Her other positions (not included in the original letter) are General Practitioner at the Women’s Clinic on Richmond Hill, Melbourne, and Medical Officer at Breastfeeding Education and Support Services, Royal Women’s Hospital, Melbourne.
