Women with MS more likely to have intervention in childbirth

But a large register-based study is reassuring on pregnancy complications and most perinatal outcomes

Women with MS are no more likely to experience stillbirths or pregnancy-related complications than those without MS, Danish researchers report.

The prevalence of elective caesarean section and induced delivery is, however, much higher among pregnant women with MS than the general population, according to a study drawing on 20 years of data.

Study author Dr Melinda Magyari, a neurologist at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, said the findings should reassure those who may be “understandably concerned” about the risks of pregnancy.
