Pregnancy complicated by neurological disorders is a challenging area for both Obstetricians and Neurologists. Treatment of the maternal condition often needs to be adjusted because of concerns for the fetus, and some conditions will have a major impact on the method, mode and timing of delivery. Many of the clinical problems that arise in pregnant women with neurological disease have not been the subject of clinical trials, so management must often be based on what published evidence is available and a good understanding of the likely interactions between the condition and pregnancy and vice versa.
The editors and contributors represent a team with considerable experience in this area. They offer their best practice advice as how to treat the mother effectively, ensuring fetal safety, as well as embracing a philosophy that the pregnancy of a woman with neurological disease should be made as enjoyable and rewarding for her as is possible.
