    So I just found out I’m expecting baby #4! What are some medicines, dewormwrs, Idk whatever, that I need to stay away from and make my husband handle for me? Basically what isn’t safe for me to handle during pregnancy? Thanks for your help!

    Any hormone drugs aren't safe.

    Personally I would play it safe and any chemicals I would stay away from or make sure I wear gloves. Nothing has really been studied on pregnant humans. There’s a town not far from us that their water causes birth defects in human babies but nothing has even come up in animals that drink the water. So although it’s safe for pregnant animals doesn’t mean it’s safe for us ;)

    Congratulations! I will add mucking stalls. And anything that involves pushing and pulling, like vacuuming. ;0)

    Anything strong smelling that may take your breath away, most wormers, and any jobs that's super dusty...like if you shave your goats you shouldn't be around during that process.

    Thank you all! I knew for sure anything hormone related, but was kind figuring everything else was at the very least a wear-gloves type of situation.

    I’m due the end of January, and we plan on kidding through December - so I’m going to be as big as a barn through all that madness :p

    Thanks again everyone!

    I would wear surgical gloves when handling any of the new goat babies, their goo or going inside a doe to pull a kid. Even though it is not likely you would "catch" anything from a kidding, it's not worth taking a chance!

    Lutalyse, Valbazen, and Baycox/Toltrazuril.

    You definitely should not be handling any birthing fluids/materials due to the risk of chlamydia and toxoplasmosis.
