Join us on September 12, 2024, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. ET to learn about optimizing fertility, managing IBD during pregnancy, and embracing parenthood with confidence. You will have the opportunity to understand the factors impacting male and female fertility when living with Crohn’s and colitis. Transitioning into pregnancy, you will hear about the important considerations before and during pregnancy, such as IBD testing, treatment options, and medication safety.

We will explore the journey of giving birth and postpartum life, including breastfeeding. Our expert speakers will also provide valuable advice on adjusting to life with a baby while navigating the challenges of IBD.
