The Impact of Rheumatoid Arthritis during Pregnancy on Mother and Child
De impact van reumatoïde artritis tijdens de zwangerschap op moeder en kind.
In this thesis we have focused more in depth on the impact of Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) during pregnancy on mother and child. Children born to women with RA have a less fortunate start compared to children born to women from the general population.
They have a higher risk of lower birth weight with a rapid catch-up growth, both risk factors for future diseases. High RA disease activity and prednisone use have been shown to be associated with less favorable pregnancy outcomes.
