MotherToBaby is dedicated to providing evidence-based information to mothers, healthcare professionals, and the general public about medications and other exposures during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
MotherToBaby is currently enrolling women in the Repatha® Pregnancy Registry study. The study is observational; participants are not asked to travel or to make any changes to their healthcare routine. Women may qualify for the study if they reside in the U.S. or Canada and were exposed to Repatha® at any point in a current or previous pregnancy.
The purpose of this registry is to collect information about your health and your baby's health. You can talk to your healthcare provider or contact 1-877-311-8972 or click the link below to enroll in this registry or get more information.
