About 800,000 women in the U.S. live with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) during their reproductive years. Help them by working in close coordination with the other health care providers (HCPs) that they rely on for healthy pregnancies.

The IBD Parenthood Project provides GIs, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other providers on the patient care team with a standardized Clinical Care Pathway, learning modules and video that will allow them to coordinate activities to provide optimal care. In the video “How to care for IBD patients in pregnancy,” learn about roles played by providers of various specialties so you can identify how best to support your patients with IBD with a coordinated plan from preconception, pregnancy, delivery and postpartum phase.

Interested in learning more? Take time to review the free learning modules, videos and Clinical Care Pathway at the Education for HCP section of the IBD Parenthood Project.
