Make Informed Decisions for Treating Patients with Allergic and Immunologic Conditions
MotherToBaby supports allergists and immunologists in managing maternal health conditions like asthma, allergies, and atopic dermatitis. We understand the challenges that you face when deciding on treatment courses when your patient is pregnant or breastfeeding. Our resources will help you weigh the risks and benefits to both your patient who is pregnant and their baby as you determine a treatment plan that maximizes disease management and minimizes maternal and fetal/infant risk.
We are also dedicated to furthering the information and understanding of medication safety in pregnancy through our observational MotherToBaby Pregnancy Studies. We are proud to lead more than half of all Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-mandated pregnancy registries conducted in the U.S., including studies on asthma and atopic dermatitis treatments. MotherToBaby Pregnancy Studies are rigorously designed cohort studies that aim to provide critically needed product safety information – and your patient referrals make all the difference. With your referral, you are helping us generate data that will lead to improved product safety information in pregnancy, thereby providing you and your patients with the evidence you need to make more informed treatment decisions.
