International Prenatal Infection Prevention Month

February is nearly over, but before it is gone, I wanted to remind you it is International Prenatal Infection Prevention Month. Prenatal infections can affect both mother and child. They can cause miscarriages, baby deaths, and lifelong physical and neurological conditions.

Okay, an important topic, but why bring it up in a book blog?

Well, you know I have an ulterior motive. I like showcasing important issues that I address in my fiction. Including prenatal infections? Of course! The Medical Kidnap Files bring awareness to a number of different diseases and disorders. Book #4, Toxo, mentions several prenatal infections, one in particular. I don’t want to give any spoilers, so I’m not going to say more than that.





Caleb, an autistic teen is mistakenly arrested.
Bad turns to worse when he is then apprehended from his family by DFS.

His mother could never have predicted the chain of events in a million years.

In trying to protect him, DFS has actually put Caleb in harm’s way.

Once again, Gabriel and Renata have teamed up to right injustice and to get Caleb to safety. But Andrew Searle is on the case, and it’s his job to see that they don’t succeed and that Caleb remains in foster care.

Ripped from the headlines, you won’t want to miss this intriguing plot!

Just like every other P.D. Workman book I’ve ever read, the gritty, raw realism of Toxo does an absolutely incredible job of taking my breath away.

Sadly, I am not able to give you a list of other great books that hang their plots on prenatal infections. I couldn’t even find many nonfiction books that go into much depth about them. If you know of any, reach out to me in the comments section, and maybe next year we’ll have a good list going.

But there are still lots of resources out there to educate us about preventing prenatal infections. Here are a few of them:
