The Motherisk International Journal is dedicated to the medical field of fetal and maternal risks of drugs, chemicals, radiation, infections and other environmental factors, as well as psychosocial risks.
The motto of Motherisk since its inception in 1985 has been
“Treating the Mother, Protecting the Unborn”.
Presently, there are journals dedicated to adverse fetal and neonatal outcomes, but the risks of not treating the mother during pregnancy have been much less discussed. A balanced picture, synthesizing risks and benefits to both mother and baby is rarely presented.
