Free service for all pregnant women in Texas!
The Pregnancy RiskLine of the Texas Teratogen Information Service is here to provide you with information on having a healthy baby. Birth defects are one of the many concerns facing an expecting mother. Your unborn baby’s health can be harmed by exposures to things such as alcohol, cigarette smoking, drugs, and some medications. These substances are called “teratogens.” For answers to your questions contact the Texas Teratogen Information Service, a non-profit organization for pregnant and nursing women. The service is funded by the Texas Department of State Health Services (formerly Texas Department of Health) and located at the University of North Texas in Denton. For more information please call toll free at 1-800-733-4727.
