We Can Help You and Your Pregnant and Lactating Patients Make Informed Decisions
MotherToBaby supports maternal-fetal medicine specialists (MFMs) in managing complex and high risk maternal health conditions during pregnancy. We understand the challenges that you face when deciding on treatment courses when your patient is pregnant or postpartum. 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 specialize in evaluating teratogenic risks associated with maternal, household, and environmental exposures, including but not limited to medications, vaccines, substances of use, maternal health conditions and infections, workplace exposures, and much more. We provide no-cost, evidence-based information in a patient-friendly manner that will help you and your patient make informed decisions for the health both of the person who is pregnant and their baby.
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. 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.
Scientific evidence on the safety, efficacy, and dosing of medicinal therapies in pregnant [people] and lactating [people] is severely lacking. On a daily basis, pregnant [people] and lactating [people] and their clinicians are forced to make decisions about whether to therapeutically treat pre-existing or emerging medical conditions…without adequate scientific knowledge of the safety and efficacy of these treatments in this population.— Task Force on Research Specific to Pregnant Women and Lactating Women (PRGLAC) Report, 2018
