INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO THINK THE FATHERS OF THEIR BABIES MAY BE EXPOSED TO VARIOUS AGENTS BEFORE OR DURING PREGNANCY

 

What are paternal exposures?

A paternal exposure is any agent to which the father or your baby may be exposed before conception or during your pregnancy. Such agents may include tobacco, alcohol, and various other drugs, occupational (workplace) exposure to various chemicals or radiation, chemotherapy and radiation therapy for cancer or other diseases, and medications. Infectious agents to which a father is exposed, such as viruses, can also be a problem as they can transfer to the mother, causing problems in the pregnancy and/or for the baby. One such example is Zika virus.
