Pregnant Women With Severe Migraine May Be At Increased Risk for Labor and Delivery

According to researchers at Montefiore Health System, women who have acute migraine attacks that are severe enough to seek medical attention and treatment are more likely to have preterm delivery, preeclampsia, complications giving birth and low birth rate. Even more specific, women who are 35 or older were seven times more likely to have these types of complications. The results of this study were of particular interest because more than half of the pregnant women with migraine experienced some type of adverse birth outcome, suggesting that these pregnancies should be considered high risk,” said study author Matthew S. Robbins, MD, director of inpatient services at Montefiore Headache Center, chief of neurology at Jack D. Weiler Hospital of Montefiore, and associate professor of clinical neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. “These findings need to be replicated with a larger number of women, including those who have migraine that does not manifest with sever attacks during pregnancy.” Click here to read more.
