Providing Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Exposure Information to Floridians
MotherToBaby Florida specialists answer questions about exposures during pregnancy and breastfeeding for Florida residents. We are housed at and funded by the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at the University of South Florida (USF) Morsani College of Medicine.
Our specialists also see patients in-person or via teleHealth at The Exposure Clinic at USF Health, where our team of certified genetic counselors and a maternal-fetal medicine specialist meet with each patient at all stages of pregnancy: preconception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. Together, they provide patients and their healthcare providers with the most accurate information about exposure risks in order to make informed choices regarding treatment and management, with the goal of reducing birth defects and health complications.
