In this thesis, several important aspects of fertility and pregnancy in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) patients are investigated in a prospective setting. Treating pregnant women with IBD remains challenging, because the optimal balance between optimal maternal care and fetal safety can be difficult to find. This thesis set out to answer several important frequently asked questions (FAQs) from IBD patients with a pregnancy wish.
