Arthritis medication & pregnancy: Is it safe?


Arthritis can strike at any age. Even pregnant women can have it. In fact, women are more likely than men to be diagnosed with arthritis and often during their childbearing years. It is important to understand how arthritis medications impact the health of mothers and babies to support safe pregnancies in women with arthritis. Dr. Mary De Vera sheds light on the use of biologics during pregnancy among women with arthritis and their effects on pregnancy outcomes.
