Are you pregnant? By simply talking to us during your pregnancy, you can contribute to important research that helps other moms and their babies. We need moms of all health backgrounds to participate!
The North American Antiepileptic Drug (AED) Pregnancy Registry housed at Massachusetts General Hospital is studying the effects of certain seizure medications during pregnancy, but we need all moms-to-be to participate so we have as much pregnancy health data as possible.
Our studies involve phone interviews. No needles, no medications, and no changes to your normal routine are required. It’s easy to make a difference!
“I participated because there should be more information out there, and if I could help other women with this important decision it will be better for women in the future who have take these medications.” – Rachael, 33, Kansas
The North American AED Pregnancy Registry was established in 1997 for pregnant women in the United States and Canada at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. It is the first hospital-based registry established to determine the safety of seizure medications that can be taken by women during pregnancy. We are very grateful to the 10,200 women who have enrolled so far. Mothers just like you.
