Abstract Risk and resilience in brain health and disease can be influenced by a variety of factors. While there is a growing appreciation to consider sex as one of these factors, far less attention has been paid to sex-specific variables that may differentially impact females such as pregnancy and reproductive history. In this review, we focus on nervous system disorders which show a female bias and for which there is data from basic research and clinical studies pointing to modification in disease risk and progression during pregnancy, postpartum and/or as a result of parity: multiple sclerosis (MS), depression, ...

BOSTON (CBS) — Imagine giving birth to a premature baby and then being told you have a brain tumor. That’s what happened to a woman from Holden. But thanks to a new approach at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, this new mom was able to have brain surgery and quickly return to her newborn son. At 27 weeks pregnant, Bethany Shea was diagnosed with preeclampsia and had an emergency C-section.

Authors: Wertaschnigg D, Wang R, Reddy M, Costa FDS, Mol BWJ, Rolnik DL Abstract Intracranial hemorrhage and stroke are primary causes of maternal mortality in pregnancies affected by hypertensive disorders. As such antihypertensive therapy plays a crucial role in the management of severe hypertension. However, the target level to achieve the best outcome for both - mother and fetus - is still unclear. Moreover, given the lack of well-designed randomized controlled trials with standardized key outcomes, the current choice of antihypertensive medications depends rather on clinicians' preference. Furthermore, data on...
