Find below some websites and resources which I found useful on my epilepsy journey and throughout pregnancy.
This resource is amazing and has been developed by Kim Morley, an epilepsy specialist nurse/midwife from her experience of supporting women with epilepsy & healthcare professionals over the last 17 years. You can also get in touch with her via email firstname.lastname@example.org
These diaries were written in 2012 by mums with epilepsy and Epilepsy Action and include my story with Riley. Lots of mums-to-be have found them really helpful and reassuring.
Written by Kim Morley this pack is amazing and has information and fact sheets you can give to obstetricians, midwives, GPs and nurses. It also includes a sheet for you to fill in and put at the front of your pregnancy notes.
Register your pregnancy with the UK pregnancy and epilepsy register to ensure women in the future have the best information available to them when making decisions on choosing epilepsy treatment during pregnancy.
You can also contact them for up to date figures on the safety of different medications and combinations in pregnancy.
A group for women with epilepsy set up by epilepsy specialist Kim Morley. It has been designed to bring women together for friendship, networking and support. Please note this is a women’s only group.
