We provide information on medications and other external factors that have an adverse impact on fertility, pregnancy and fetal development. We also advise you on all medication issues during breastfeeding. You can contact us when you are only just planning the pregnancy.

We make no comment on how the mother, the pregnancy, or the child are cared for, and we do not prescribe medications. When the service is not open, please contact your local maternity clinic. If you want to talk about exposure and risks at work, please contact your occupational health care service in the first instance.

We can also be contacted by health care professionals, pharmacies, the authorities, and the media. Health care professionals may also contact us with patient-related queries by e-mail at: @email. We do not respond to questions sent by the general public by e-mail.
