In brief: CONCLUSIONS

Successful completion of pregnancy is a realistic expectation for patients with well controlled aih.
Treatment options vary, but azathioprine appears to be generally safe and without adverse outcomes for mother or baby. Vigilance is required, however, and patients need to be monitored carefully during pregnancy and for several months post partum. http://gut.bmj.com/content/48/1/97.abstract.
