Key points
  1. Regular medication reviews should be undertaken for women of childbearing age.
  2. Neonatologists should ensure that a detailed maternal medication history is taken for all babies admitted to neonatal units.
  3. Fetal renin-angiotensin system blockade is a rare but potentially life-threatening condition. For those babies who do survive, neonatologists should ensure appropriate follow-up is put in place post-discharge.
