Eplipesy, Seizures, and Pregnancy: Information Sources

In pregnancy those women with seizure disorders or epilepsy have several important and unique considerations. A seizure can compromise blood flow to the baby therefore be a source of compromise to the baby. The medications given for epilepsy and other seizure disorders can compromise the developing fetus as well. These factors for moms with seizures have been studied very closely in a new study from the North American Antiepileptic Drug Pregnancy Registry. It is a great resource for pregnant moms and their caretakers. Ideally, like for all women planning pregnancy, a visit to your neurologist pre-pregnancy, as well as that trip to the gyno to discuss the issues will help make your pregnancy as healthy as possible.
