DELAY OF SERVICE NOTICE: MotherToBaby experts will be gathering for their annual meeting June 22-25. Please expect delays in our response time during this period. Questions submitted during this time will be responded to as soon as possible and in the order they are received.
The experts behind MotherToBaby have created fact sheets that answer frequently asked questions about exposures during pregnancy and breastfeeding. MotherToBaby Fact Sheets are available in both English and Spanish and can be downloaded for free.
Not only do the experts at MotherToBaby provide information about exposures in pregnancy, they are also actively adding to that information by conducting MotherToBaby Pregnancy Studies.
