Our Data

Our experts combine clinical research with real life experience to provide
you with in-depth, unbiased and reliable information

Here’s where the data our experts use come from

Experience. Our maternal health experts use their extensive knowledge and experience to answer your questions accurately and with a language that is easy to understand.

Labels of prescription medications. Every prescription medication approved in the United States comes with a product label, also known as the Package Insert, written by the pharmaceutical company. Our experts use this information to assess the risks, benefits, and side effects of the product.

Data from other websites. Since the earliest days of the Internet, millions of people have shared their health experiences on hundreds of websites. We have extracted this type of data from many websites and use it to augment our own data where appropriate.

Data from proprietary databases, pregnancy registries, and the scientific literature. Our database includes information we’ve extracted from various medical data sources focused on pregnancy and lactation. We also utilize publicly available data from pregnancy registries and our experts conduct in-depth reviews of the scientific literature to ensure that their information is up-to-date and accurate.
