What to do once you learn you are pregnant
- Contact your doctor. The best person equipped to work with you in deciding what you need to do to ensure the safety of your unborn child is your healthcare provider. If you have MS, contact your neurologist. If you have RA, contact your rheumatologist. You get the idea.
- Women who become pregnant while using prescription medication can contribute to the body of evidence-based information regarding the exposure of medications during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Contact MotherToBaby.org, a service of the non-profit Organization of Teratology Information Specialists (OTIS), to speak with experts, obtain information, and register with research studies.
- Contact the manufacturer of the medications you are taking. Some companies offer programs that enroll patients who become pregnant into studies to track their progress and outcomes.
