MotherToBaby is Here to Help.
As a healthcare provider who treats women of reproductive potential, 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 patients about the medications they may need to take for their medical conditions. But there is good news: we can help.
We Provide Exposure Information.
MotherToBaby is a service of the non-profit Organization of Teratology Information Specialists, the professional scientific society that is comprised of experts in the field of birth defects prevention. We have patient-friendly fact sheets in English and Spanish on many medications, maternal health conditions, infections, vaccines, and other common exposures. Our fact sheets contain up-to-date, evidence-based information about the effects of an exposure during pregnancy and lactation. For the questions that you or your patient have that aren’t addressed by our fact sheets, our experts are just a phone call – text – email – chat away, and our service is always offered at no cost to you or your patient.
We Partner with Physicians and Patients to Monitor Pregnancy Exposures.
We also conduct MotherToBaby Pregnancy Studies, a series of observational pregnancy cohort studies that evaluate the safety (or risk) in pregnancy of medications used to treat a variety of medical conditions, as well as the safety (or risk) of vaccines in pregnancy. As the largest conductor of pregnancy registries in North America, we partner with physicians and patients across the U.S. and Canada to monitor pregnancy exposures and outcomes, with the goal of providing you and your pregnant patients with much-needed treatment safety information.
