This looks like a fantastic event for health professionals and will hopefully help build understanding of epilepsy and pregnancy and what extra care women with epilepsy need on their journey.
I also feel honoured that I have been invited along to the day to share my own experiences with health professionals and I'm really looking forward to it.
The day is going to look at:
Epilepsy, diagnosis and management, seizure types, treatment
Teratogenicity of anti epileptic drugs, valproate and learning disability
Pre-conceptual counselling, contraception and fertility
Management of pregnant women with epilepsy - a confidential enquiry
Epilepsy Care in Pregnancy
UK Epilepsy and Pregnancy Register
Ante natal care
Labour, delivery and post delivery
Personal experience of epilepsy and pregnancy
So looks like an excellent day. If you are a health professional and would like to attend you can find out more about the event and book your free place here.
I'll be writing about the event afterwards so watch this space!
