Each year approximately 20,000 women with epilepsy become pregnant. The number of women with epilepsy becoming pregnant has increased over the years because of increased marriage rates, more social acceptance of parenting, and improved medical management of pregnancy in women with epilepsy. Women with epilepsy have a 90 percent chance of having a healthy, normal baby. The risk that children of parents with epilepsy will themselves develop epilepsy is only about 5 percent unless the parent has a clearly hereditary form of the disorder. Epilepsy and Pregnancy answers all your questions and concerns. The book also directs you to different organizations that can help you during this very important time of your life. A baby represents the freedom of hope, love and joy. Don't let your disorder scare you from experiencing the beauties of childbirth.
THE BOOK (EPILEPSY AND PREGNANCY) WILL BE PUBLISHED THIS DECEMBER OF 2004
