To support GIs, AGA, the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and the patient support network, Girls With Guts, have established IBD Parenthood Project, an initiative that aims to address misperceptions and fears women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and their providers experience throughout all phases of family planning. In the Education for Health Care Providers section of the project, you can access learning modules, videos and a clinical care pathway to support your work.

The IBD Parenthood Project creates a standardized workflow for providers who treat women with IBD. In the first video “What is the IBD in Pregnancy Clinical Care Pathway?” you will learn basic facts and myths about women with IBD who are pregnant such as the importance of continuing IBD medications during pregnancy. The video also walks through the clinical care pathway, which outlines care for the IBD patient from conception to post-partum.

Interested in learning more? Take time to review the IBD Parenthood Project learning modules, videos and clinical care pathway.
