Pregnancy When You Have a Chronic Illness or Disability
Pregnant with a chronic illness? We'd love to hear your stories!


Things to be aware of:

A perinatologist is an obstetrician who has subspecialized in the care of pregnant women and unborn babies. If you have a complicated pregnancy or one at high risk of having complications, you may be referred to one of these physicians. They are often the specialists who perform the level 2 or detailed ultrasound examination. To find out risks to unborn babies due to your medications, a perinatologist would be the doctor to talk to!
