Statement: Motherisk website not operated by SickKids

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) wishes to alert the public and the medical community that the motherisk.org website is currently being operated by a third party and in no way represents SickKids or the former Motherisk Helplines.

In April 2019, the Motherisk Helplines and website closed, following years of declining grant funding leading to staff reductions, as well as unsuccessful efforts to secure an alternative host for the program.

Individuals with questions about medications and other exposures during pregnancy and breastfeeding can contact their health-care providers.
