Is there a risk for the baby?
If asthma becomes uncontrolled, it can be potentially dangerous for both you and your baby.
There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to keep your asthma under control during pregnancy, as at any other time. You should carry on taking your prescribed asthma treatment all the way through your pregnancy if your doctor advises you to do so.
Unless your asthma gets much worse, your treatment will be exactly the same as it was before you got pregnant. If it gets worse, you should speak to your doctor to reassess your asthma treatment and adjust your asthma treatment plan.
The main risks during pregnancy will happen if you stop your asthma treatment and your symptoms become uncontrolled. This poses a big risk for both yours and your baby’s health. Uncontrolled asthma symptoms will also increase the chances of your baby being born with a low birthweight.
