A recent report has identified epilepsy as one of the leading causes of maternal deaths in the UK (MBRRACE-UK https://tinyurl.com/MBRRACEUKreport). The Dame Hilda Lloyd Network is mapping the care of pregnant women with epilepsy across the UK.  Results from this survey will help inform policymakers, training and future research on epilepsy in pregnancy.
