Abstract: Asthma is a serious complication that is often under-reported and undermanaged during pregnancy. The current guidelines for the care of pregnant asthmatics are similar to treating a nonpregnant asthmatic It is important to treat asthma exacerbations during pregnancy to avoid a poor outcome for the fetus. The best clinical approach for reducing exacerbation rates during pregnancy and improving the outcome for the fetus is through asthma education combined with an asthma self-management plan administered in a combined antenatal and respiratory clinic.
