To help your patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have a healthy pregnancy, you need:
- Quality information to provide to your patients.
- Collaboration with health care providers across specialties.
- Shared decision making with all participants.
To facilitate this goal, AGA, with support from the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and the patient support network Girls With Guts, has established the IBD Parenthood Project. This initiative addresses misperceptions and fears women with IBD and their providers experience throughout all phases of family planning.
The IBD Parenthood Project clinical care pathway outlines care for patients with IBD from conception to post-partum. In this video, “What is the IBD in Pregnancy Clinical Care Pathway?,” Drs. Uma Mahadevan, Christopher Robinson, and Rajeev Jain explain how to implement this care model and share myths related to IBD and family planning.
