Can pregnancy and Multiple Sclerosis go together?

Mariko Kita, MD, Director, Virginia Mason Multpile Sclerosis Center and Clinical Investigator at BRI, discusses Multiple Sclerosis and the general worries that come with it on New Day Northwest. Dr. Kita explains that pregnancy and MS can go together, and can actually benefit the patient. Pregnancy produces a unique immunological state that naturally helps to control strong autoimmune responses for obvious reasons. MS is controlled during pregnancy about as well as it is with any FDA approved disease modifying therapy.
