Abstract

Care of the pregnant patient is challenging because of the multiple physiologic changes associated with pregnancy and the need to consider the impact of any intervention on the fetus. This article addresses management issues that arise while caring for patients with epilepsy, eclampsia, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and headache. An emphasis is placed on considerations involving medication use and approaches to patient care are suggested.
