Pregnant women with migraine have a higher risk of complications, new research says

Pregnant women with migraine are at higher risk of complications and should be considered “high-risk” pregnancies, specialists have reported.

“Most women with migraine experience improvement in migraine symptoms during pregnancy,” said Dr Nirit Lev of the Meir Medical Center and Tel Aviv University in Tel Aviv, Israel. “However, some women report worsening of migraine during pregnancy or de novo migraine.”
