There are a lot of babies that are born defective as the result of events before and during the course of their pregnancy and such circumstances are classified as teratogens. Teratogens are environmental agents that will disturb the conventional fetal development once the mother is exposed to them, leading to prenatal maldevelopment or death (Kalter, 2010). This study made used a descriptive survey design as a method of research. A descriptive design is a type of quantitative research. The main source of data for this study were the pregnant mothers who are having their pre-natal consultation which includes all primigravida, multigravida, first trimester, second trimester, and third trimester patients of Gov. Faustino N. Dy Sr. Memorial Hospital. The study excludes those who are not patients of the said institution and are unwilling to participate in the survey.  The research findings highlight the need for a comprehensive health education programs to address knowledge gaps and improve awareness among pregnant women. It is crucial to develop targeted educational initiatives that provide accurate information on the risks and consequences associated with teratogenic exposure during pregnancy. Collaborating with healthcare professionals and integrating teratogenic risk assessment and counseling into routine prenatal care can further enhance knowledge dissemination and informed decision-making.
