thanks for the article! It is important for women w/ IBD to take pregnancy and flares very seriously. I delivered both babies premature. First one delivered at 33wks, when i was in the throws of my first ever UC flare, that was undiagnosed at the time. Second child delivered at 34wks, flare began at conception after over a yr of remission.
side note, i do also have other maternal illness, so it was not determined for sure that the flare caused the preterm births.
