Abstract

Asthma complicates 1% to 4% of pregnancies and has been associated with an increased incidence of preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, preterm delivery, and intrauterine growth retardation. Asthma must be treated promptly and aggressively to prevent maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. New approaches to therapy emphasize treating the underlying inflammation that is associated with airway hyperreactivity as well as treating the bronchospasm directly.
