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.

Ongoing Studies

We’re sure you will agree that there are gaps in our knowledge when it comes to medication safety in pregnancy. Our MotherToBaby Pregnancy Studies aim to provide this 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.

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. Women self-enroll, so after you refer a patient, nothing further is required from you.

To refer a patient now, click here and provide the information requested; your patient will then be contacted by one of our information specialists. To learn more about our Ongoing Studies, follow the link below.
