A fantastic step in the right direction!

I got a phone call a couple of days ago from my GP surgery.  They were looking through all the notes of people with epilepsy at the surgery... which included me.

They asked me when my last seizure was and then went onto ask if I knew the risks of anti-epileptic meds in pregnancy... how fantastic is that! Having my GP contact me to ask me about it is a huge step to making sure women with epilepsy are given the right information.

I don't know whether it had anything to do with the campaign, I'd like to think it did but either way it can only be a positive step and hopefully it's not just my GP that is helping to make sure women with epilepsy feel supported in starting a family.
