We also provide information about the effects of medications taken while breastfeeding.

Mission:MotherToBaby CAs mission is two-fold: education and research. Our goal is the elimination of preventable birth defects through the promotion of healthy pregnancies.
Programs:Our community education and outreach activities include participation in health fairs, medical conferences and other community events.

MotherToBaby CA is frequently asked to speak at community groups or organizations on teratogens and their effects on the developing fetus. Our available speakers are Teratogen Information Specialists, a prenatal epidemiologist or a physician. The speaker format generally includes a 45-minute to 1-hour presentation on the requested topic followed by audience questions. The presentation may include lecture, slides or videos, depending on the topic discussed. Literature is available for participants to take home.
