We Can Help You and Your Pregnant and Lactating Patients Make Informed Decisions
Internists play a vital role in providing comprehensive care to people who are or may become pregnant or who are breastfeeding. Here at MotherToBaby, we understand the challenges that you face when deciding on treatment courses when your patient is pregnant or lactating. No matter if your patient has hypertension or diabetes, depression or anxiety, digestive problems or respiratory problems, 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.
Even perfectly healthy patients may have questions about the potential impact of over-the-counter medications, workplace exposures, or cosmetic treatments during pregnancy or lactation – we can answer those questions, too. Whether your patient is engaged in preconception planning, already pregnant, or postpartum, our resources will help you and your patients make more informed decisions to reduce risk to both the parent and their developing baby.
[People who are pregnant] suffering from medical disorders need to be cared for by internists as well as by obstetricians. The internist has to play a key role in coordinating care every time a [person who is pregnant] suffers from a medical disease that touches his area of expertise.— Pourrat, 2005
