Would you like us to call your patient?

A counselor can contact your patient over the phone about the risks presented by drugs, medications, infectious diseases or other agents during pregnancy.

Here’s how:

1. Print the Fax Referral Form, fill-in the required information, have your patient sign the consent to be contacted.

A written summary letter of the current known information about her exposures can be sent to her.

Your patient can provide a copy of this letter to you at her first or subsequent visit, which can be included in her medical file, or she can sign the consent form to have a copy of her letter sent to you.

2. Fax the form to 858-408-9458.

Many California Obstetricians, Nurse-Midwives, Public Health Nurses, and most San Diego WIC sites and Planned Parenthood Prenatal Clinics use this procedure to help educate their patients/clients.

To educate the public, the Organization of Teratology Information Specialists has compiled fact sheets on various exposures of concern.  Fact sheets answer frequently asked questions about exposures during pregnancy and lactation and have been designed to print on a single double-sided page. Click onto the fact sheets page to find more information for you and your patients.  You can also refer to LactMed, a Drugs and Lactation Database.
