Is my medication still ok to take if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding? What about marijuana? Is it ok?

These are questions Chris Stallman, a mom just like you, hears every day through her work as a genetic counselor and teratogen information specialist, which is a fancy way of saying she’s an expert in anything a woman might come in contact with and its known risks during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. She’s part of a non-profit service called MotherToBaby and in The MotherToBaby Podcast, she’ll answer your burning questions about what’s ok and what’s not during pregnancy and breastfeeding. No judgment. No topics are off-limits.
