"The purpose of this program is to decrease maternal and child morbidity and mortality associated with pre-and post-natal environmental exposures.  One organization will be funded that will implement and support a network of national and regional teratogen information service (TIS) counseling centers.  A teratogen is defined as an agent that may induce abnormal embryo or fetal development when administered during pregnancy. This program is intended to be a resource for women of reproductive age, their partners and healthcare providers, with an emphasis on vulnerable and hard-to-reach populations. For the purpose of this program, “post-natal exposure” refers to infants who are receiving breast milk."
