MDTV on Pregnancy and Autoimmune Disease
Dr. Cush: Postpartum Period
The Postpartum Period Includes Conditions that Pose a Challenge
The Postpartum Period Includes Conditions that Pose a Challenge. For a new mother with an Autoimmune Disease, the postpartum period includes conditions that pose a challenge to her disease. Doctor-Patient communication is vital. In RA, for example, 90 percent of patients are going to worsen with flares in the first few months after pregnancy. Plans for having more children should be discussed. On this MDTV Learning Module from the Pregnancy and Autoimmune Disease Channel, John J Cush, MD, Director of Clinical Rheumatology at Baylor University Medical Center, explains more

The postpartum period can be a challenge to new mothers in the best of circumstances, but especially for a woman with an autoimmune disease. Some diseases, such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, have a tendency to flare after pregnancy. John J Cush, MD, Director of Clinical Rheumatology at Baylor University Medical Center, explained to MDTV how important doctor-patient communication is for preparing new mothers for the challenges ahead, as well as to make the appropriate medical decisions regarding future family planning.
