Abstract

Migraine and pregnancy commonly co-exist and healthcare providers should be ready to give advice to women with migraine regarding treatment options that are compatible with pregnancy and lactation. A major goal of treatment is to avoid medications that may be harmful to the developing fetus or cause other pregnancy problems. Nonpharmacological behavioral methods of treatment are especially useful in pregnancy. Migraine increases the risk of pregnancy-related stroke and pre-eclampsia and women with migraine should be monitored for these problems.
