Pregnancy in women with asthma and its impact on child
Danuta Chmielewska-Szewczyk

Asthma is a common disease which occurs in the age of bearing children (8-12%). During pregnancy, the disease may have similar course, but it can also be clearly exacerbated and require more intensive treatment. At least in one third of pregnant women with asthma it is observed ameliorating of the disease or complete resolution of symptoms. Asthma may influence the pregnancy of the mother, the development of the fetus and delivery. Among the threats to the child, the pregnancy of mothers with asthma often carries the risk of premature birth, inhibition of intrauterine unborn child growth, the increase of births by caesarean section, fewer cases of congenital malformations, and increased perinatal mortality. The biggest risk to the fetus is hypoxia during exacerbations of asthma in the mother, discontinuation of medication against asthma and inadequate mother’s asthma control before pregnancy. Despite numerous studies in large cohorts of subjects the results obtained are often contradictory and require further investigation. The correct treatment of asthma during pregnancy significantly reduces the possibility of any complications.
