How can you have a healthy pregnancy while living with Arthritis?



The CSA was thrilled to host Dr. Carl Laskin for a very special webinar on arthritis and pregnancy Dr. Laskin, a rheumatologist that specializes in pregnant patients, provided excellent information on the interaction of medicine and answered questions from the community regarding concerns around pregnancy, fertility and arthritis.

Topics will include:

  • Family planning and discussions with your doctor
  • When will I be ready to go forward and try to get pregnant?
  • Is spondylitis and other rheumatic diseases associated with fertility problems?
  • If I get pregnant, what are my next steps?
  • What can I expect during pregnancy regarding my underlying spondylitis?
  • Are there special considerations regarding labour and delivery? Will I need a cesarian section?
  • After delivery, will my spondylitis flare?
  • Now my child is 2 years of age and my partner and I are planning another pregnancy. How should I proceed?
