SIGN Patient Information Booklet for Asthma in Pregnancy

The patient version of Asthma in Pregnancy was published on 28th March. The booklet is for women who are pregnant or trying for a baby.

This is a completely new booklet explaining the recommendations in the SIGN 153 clinical guideline on asthma, produced by the British Thoracic Society (BTS) and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN). It gives patients information about how to cope with asthma during pregnancy and covers smoking, diet, breastfeeding, immunisations, medicines that are safe to take when pregnant and why having an asthma attack during pregnancy is a medical emergency.
