Third-trimester postpartum planning for women with MS
For pregnant women with MS, preparing for the birth of a child can be a time of excitement and anxiety. Each woman should work closely with her neurologist and other care team members to determine how best to manage her MS in the postpartum period. In addition to postpartum disease management, postpartum depression should also be assessed, because although the data are limited, it appears that new mothers with MS may have an increased risk of postpartum depression.
This episode will feature 3 unique perspectives on postpartum planning for new mothers with MS: Ms. Melanie Huff, a nurse practitioner who specializes in MS; Dr. Adam Kaplin, a mental health specialist; and Lindsey, a mother with MS who has first-hand experience with the postpartum period.
