Current Issue


ABSTRACT: Epilepsy is a common disease that affects 1.5 million women of childbearing age in the United States. Approximately 24,000 women with epilepsy give birth each year 1 . The challenges for women with epilepsy extend from menarche to postmenopause, including prepregnancy, pregnancy, intrapartum and postpartum periods, menopause, and postreproductive age. The most up-to-date neurology and epilepsy guidelines provided in this monograph will enable obstetrician–gynecologists to provide care to women with this complex condition across the life span.
