The activity of a rheumatic disease can be influenced by pregnancy and puerperium. Prospective studies have shown an improvement in joint involvement in rheumatoid arthritis in two thirds to three quarters of pregnancies. After birth, an exacerbation is common. In spondylarthropathies there is no relevant change in disease activity. The fetal outcome is not impaired in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory spondylarthropathies. Every pregnancy in women with a rheumatic disease should be considered as high-risk, and such pregnancies require close collaboration between rheumatologists and obstetricians.
