Helping You Educate Your Pregnant and Lactating Patients about Exposure Risks
MotherToBaby supports family practice physicians in their treatment and management of pregnant or breastfeeding patients by providing you with patient education materials and access to our experts who can answer questions about environmental exposure risks during pregnancy and lactation. We provide you and your patients with up-to-date, evidence-based information on the safety/risk of prescription and over-the-counter medications, vaccines, maternal health conditions or infections, drugs and substance use, herbal products, cosmetic treatments, workplace exposures, foods and beverages, and much more.
We understand the challenges that you face when deciding on treatment courses for your patients during preconception planning, during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding. We also know that your pregnant or lactating patients may have a litany of questions about whether certain exposures may pose a risk to their pregnancy or their developing baby. Our resources will help you and your patient weigh the risks and benefits of an exposure for both your patient who is pregnant and their baby, providing you with the information that you need to make informed decisions that minimize maternal and fetal/infant risk.
After identifying the risks and benefits of treatments, family physicians can engage in shared decision making with their pregnant patients.— Gregory et al., 2018
