National Women's Health Week (NWHW) May 8-14, 2022, is an annual weeklong observance that begins on Mother’s Day and encourages women to make their health a priority and take care of themselves.

Maternal health refers to the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postnatal period. Having a baby can be a joyous and emotional time, and each stage of the process should be a positive experience. #KNOWHmore to help women and their babies reach their full potential for health and well-being.

This webinar will discuss the FDA’s current pregnancy and lactation labeling system, also known as the Pregnancy and Lactation Labeling Rule (PLLR).
