Caring for the obstetric patient with significant medical problems can be complex. Neurologic diseases in pregnancy can range in severity and therefore vary in the amount of care planning that is required. Certain diseases will require more coordination of care with multidisciplinary teams than others. In these cases, the use of care maps or guidelines can assist practitioners with providing comprehensive care. This chapter will serve as an overview of pregnancy-specific considerations that will be reviewed in subsequent chapters throughout this book. Overall, by focusing attention to the specific needs of the complex obstetric neurologic patient, practitioners can help to optimize outcomes for these women and their pregnancies.
