The purpose of this study was to determine the needs of pharmaceutical care in pregnant women. A descriptive study using structural questionnaire determined the needs of pharmaceutical care in pregnant women. A convenience sample was recruited from the community teaching hospital in southern Taiwan. The demographic data and the needs of pharmaceutical care were obtained by self-administered questionnaires, which had established reliability and validity. Data were analyzed using SPSS, version 10.0 for Windows. A total of 179 providers completed the questionnaires of this survey. The subjects' supporting system of knowledge in medication mostly was professionals(33.5%, n = 60) and commercial DM (27.4%, n = 49). Knowledge in traditional Chinese medicine, however, mostly was mother or mother-in-law (46.4% and 48.0%, n = 83 and 86, respectively). The majority of providers were suffered from morning sickness in the 1st trimester of pregnancy, but only 10.6% (n = 19) declared that were unbearable. There were 54.2% (n = 97) and 36.3% (n = 65) of providers using medication or/and traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate their nausea and vomiting. For the medication, the providers were acknowledged to consult physicians and nurses, rarely to consult pharmacists both in hospital and community (14%, n = 25), and they even did not know there are pharmaceutical services in pharmacy department of hospital and drug store of community (13.4%, n = 24). Results indicated that pregnant women needs pharmaceutical care especially in consultation of the use of medication or herb for nausea and vomiting and other slight illness. But, first of all, they must be acknowledged that there are always professionals standing right there both in hospital pharmacy department and community pharmacy for the knowledge of the drugs used in pregnancy to serve pregnant women.
