For Health Professionals
As a healthcare provider who treats pregnant and breastfeeding women and women of reproductive age, you’re well-aware of the challenges in making treatment decisions for patients who are pregnant, could become pregnant, or are nursing. Animal-only data and limited case reports may create dilemmas for you when counseling some of your female patients about the medications they may need to take for their medical conditions. But there is good news: we can help. MotherToBaby has easy-to-find fact sheets on many medications and their use during pregnancy and lactation. These fact sheets are patient-friendly and contain up-to-date, evidence-based information. For the questions you have that aren’t addressed by our fact sheets, we’re just a phone call – text – email – chat away.

We’re sure you will agree that there are gaps in our knowledge when it comes to medication safety in pregnancy. To help fill these gaps, MotherToBaby is a leader in teratology and birth defects research. Our Pregnancy Studies focus on evaluating the safety (or risk) in pregnancy of medications used to treat a variety of medical conditions, as well as the safety of vaccines in pregnancy. Our studies aim to provide much-needed information to healthcare providers and patients alike; to do so, we need your help – please consider referring a pregnant patient to our Pregnancy Studies today.
We currently have studies on the following topics:
- Medications used to treat Autoimmune diseases
- Medications used to treat Asthma
- Pertussis (whooping cough) Vaccine
- Influenza Vaccines and Antiviral Medications
Your patient may qualify for one or more of our studies if she is currently pregnant and:
- Has asthma or an autoimmune disease.
- Has received one or more of the vaccines listed above.
- Does not have an autoimmune disease or asthma, and/or has chosen not to receive one or more of the vaccines listed above.
Our studies are observational, which means your patient will not be asked to take any medications or vaccines or change any part of her routine. If your patient qualifies for a study, she will not only have the opportunity to interact with our expert staff who can provide additional support during her pregnancy, she will also play a key role in helping us learn more about the safety of medications and/or vaccines during pregnancy for her benefit and the benefit of pregnant women and their babies in the future.
To refer a patient now, click here and provide the information requested. Your patient will then be contacted by one of our information specialists.
