    There are people who have conceived while taking biological treatments such as infliximab and have had successful, event free outcomes.  One small, recent study showed that whilst the newly born to mothers who were exposed to infliximab developed normally over a few months of being followed up and had not experienced any signs of infection, allergic reactions or other problems, it advised that the effect on the developing immune system of the unborn was still unknown.  The need for treatment for the health of both mother and baby (foetus) can only be weighed up based on each individual situation, so it is best to discuss it with the clinical team involved in your care.  Over to any mum’s so that you share your experience.
