INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE A SEIZURE DISORDER (EPILEPSY) DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is a seizure disorder?

A seizure is an abnormal sudden surge in electrical activity in the brain. This causes changes in how the person appears or acts for a short time, which can include changes in mood, movement, emotions, or consciousness. A seizure disorder is also referred to as epilepsy.

For most women with a seizure disorder, pregnancy will not increase how often seizures occur. However, 15 to 30 percent of women will have an increase in seizure frequency.
