Pregnancy with SLE or any other medical issue should deliver between 37 -38 completed weeks ... Untill and unless there is any strong indication for preterm delivery like eclampsia . Post delivery baby should be evaluated thoroughly for congenital heart block and other congenital anamolies
Before 37 werks ... But always remember..Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease, primarily affecting young females. Pregnancy in a woman with SLE remains a high risk situation with higher maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity. ... Mothers are faced with disease flares, pre-eclampsia and other complications.
Before 37 week of gestation....It is strongly recommended that you avoid pregnancy until at least six months after the lupus disease activity, especially kidney disease, has been completely brought under control. Pregnancy places an added burden on your kidneys and active kidney disease can even lead to pregnancy loss
In absence of preeclampsia or any other impending indication for delivery ....are we justified in delivering preterm baby?
>37 weeks
