Pregnancy With Rheumatoid Arthritis

Pregnancy With Rheumatoid Arthritis

In the past, women with rheumatoid arthritis
were discouraged from getting pregnant. But now the picture is different. I’m Jennifer
Dodd and this is a dailyRx Feature. With the help of their doctors, along with careful
disease management, most women with rheumatoid arthritis can have a successful pregnancy.
A successful pregnancy, however, does not necessarily mean everything goes according
to plan. According to the American College of Rheumatology, “Doctors and patients must
be ready to deal with possible complications for both mother and child.” Rheumatoid arthritis
and similar diseases often affect women when they reach their childbearing years. Women
with rheumatoid arthritis needn’t be discouraged from getting pregnant, but they should be
prepared. It is especially important that patients get their rheumatoid arthritis under
control before getting pregnant. Through working closely with their doctors, women with rheumatoid
arthritis can have a pregnancy similar to that of otherwise healthy women. For DailyRx
TV, I’m Jennifer Dodd
