Patient care plans
This draft maternity toolkit has been designed by Kim Morley, epilepsy specialist midwife practitioner. It gives a summary of a woman’s epilepsy, treatment and management recommendations. It supports information gathering and signposting at all stages of pregnancy to ensure prompt appropriate care and early risk identification.
It is intended this toolkit is used alongside the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) Epilepsy in Pregnancy guidelines (2016), the free Women with epilepsy website and the UK Epilepsy and Pregnancy Register.
Comments and feedback are invited from health professionals and women with epilepsy to help validate this tool. Once you have accessed the maternity toolkit, please take the Maternity toolkit survey (available on the Women with epilepsy website). This takes approximately 2 minutes to complete. Thank you for your help in completing the survey.
