Migraine Linked to Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes


Key clinical point: Pregnant women with a history of migraine are at an increased risk of adverse outcomes, including preeclampsia (PE) and low birth weight (LBW).

Major finding: Women with migraine had a higher risk for PE (odds ratio, 2.07; 95% confidence interval, 1.51-2.85) and LBW (odds ratio, 1.18; 95% confidence interval, 1.03-1.34) compared with women without migraine. No significant association was observed between the history of migraine and preterm birth or small for gestational age.

Study details: A systematic review and meta-analysis of 14 studies.
