Have an option where women can ask questions in real time with any mobile device. Have nurses available who can text with the women to answer questions. Create pamphlets to dispel myths regarding what causes birth defects. For instance I read in a book that a women was told by her doctor that by drinking water that was too cold, that this was why her child had brain damage at birth. I also read another book where people believed that sitting on concrete steps or walls would make men and women not able to have children. I think that in some countries women live with a lot of guilt due to lack of information.
