Association of Birth Defect Children, Inc.
This nonproﬁt group provides information and support to families of children with BIRTH DEFECTS caused by their mothers’ exposure to environmental agents such as drugs, chemicals, or radiation. The association sponsors a National Birth Defects Registry, which contains demographic data and medical histories from member families in the United States and Canada and matches families of children with similar disabilities.

Families of children with genetic birth defects are also eligible for membership.
