Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder characterized by recurrent seizures. Approximately 40% of women suffering with epilepsy are in the reproductive age group. Between 0.3% and 0.7% of all pregnancies are in women with epilepsy. It is the most common neurological disorder requiring medical treatment during pregnancy [1,2]. Epilepsy treatment presents important clinical challenges during pregnancy. Infants of women with epilepsy have an increased risk of congenital malformations due mainly to the teratogenic effect of anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) [3].
