“Lupus adds an increased risk to pregnancy. Many woman can still have a successful pregnancy but their lupus needs to be stable and they need to be off most lupus treatment medications.“
I can say that I was lucky to be diagnosed with lupus after giving birth to my wonderful baby boy, however, looking back I am left wondering if the complications I experienced during my pregnancy and even during the birthing process, was in relation to, or considered a complication of the lupus I was yet aware of???
That’s why I can’t stress enough how important it is to KNOW LUPUS!
Know the signs. Know the triggers. Be aware.
