Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, also sometimes known as Hashimoto’s Disease, is an autoimmune condition where the body attacks healthy cells instead of dangerous cells. This condition does potentially pose some risks for women who want to get pregnant or who are pregnant.

Studies have shown that getting pregnant with Hashimoto’s disease can cause complications such as preeclampsia/hypertension, placental rupture, preterm delivery with low birth weight, postpartum hemorrhage, and physical/neurological/psychological problems for the child. However, careful monitoring by a doctor or health care professional can minimize the risks of Hashimoto’s disease for both mother and baby.
It’s very important for women with Hashimoto’s Disease to make sure that their thyroid function is under control before trying to become pregnant. A close relationship with a doctor is very important for women who wish to become pregnant with Hashimoto’s Thryoiditis. Sometimes, women will need to up their dosages of their medications during pregnancy, and careful and close monitoring is a must have in these situations.
Keep in mind that while there are some potential issues surrounding pregnancy and Hashimoto’s Disease, many women with the condition go on to become pregnant and have healthy babies. A close relationship with a doctor or health care provider is ideal in this situation and will help women stay on the right track throughout their pregnancy.
