Preparing for Pregnancy: A Checklist for Patients & Providers


Thinking about pregnancy?

Careful planning increases the likelihood of pregnancy success for women with lupus.

Keeping lupus activity well controlled using pregnancy-compatible medications will decrease the risk for pregnancy loss and preterm delivery.

To have the healthiest pregnancy possible, use the checklist with your providers/patients to determine:

  • If lupus activity is well controlled
  • Which medications are right for pregnancy
  • What doctors should be included in the process
  • How to plan for other health issues
