Women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and the physicians who care for them must make difficult decisions on issues of conception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding with very limited and often contradictory information. This review provides the most current information on the inheritance of IBD, fertility, pregnancy outcomes, the management of disease during pregnancy, and the safety of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding. We would like to emphasize that the information presented here must be individualized to the specific situation of each patient, their acceptance of risk, and their degree of disease severity.
