Pregnancy and parenting

Our affiliates at Canadian Arthritis Patient Alliance created a resource on pregnancy and parenting with arthritis. The resource covers a variety of topics including:

• Fertility and family planning
• Medication use
• Managing arthritis during pregnancy
• Labour and delivery
• Physical care of children, and
• Dealing with fatigue and flares.

It also contains various quotes / statements from people living with arthritis who have experienced some of the challenges first-hand. The resource has been medically reviewed by Dr. Evelyne Vinet (rheumatologist and researcher) and Dr. Catherine Backman (occupational therapist and researcher) who have a great deal of expertise in pregnancy and parenting with arthritis.
