The Pregnancy Register

The aims of the service were to:

  1. Establish the relative safety of anti-epileptic drugs with reference to major malformations in the offspring of women with epilepsy.
  2. To establish whether seizure frequency is related to adverse outcome in pregnancy.
  3. To monitor the rate of pre-conceptual folic acid administration in women with epilepsy and whether this beneficially affects outcome.
  4. To educate individuals about epilepsy and pregnancy, by giving preconception, pregnancy and post pregnancy advice.
