Animation - Optimizing Pregnancy Outcomes with IBD
The prime childbearing years overlap with the peak incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and therefore, concerns about getting pregnant are common among women with IBD. This animation discusses the importance of achieving and maintaining remission prior to and during pregnancy to optimize outcomes for both the mother and child. The animation also describes which IBD medications are safe to take during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
