Welcome to the most comprehensive resources about pregnancy with fibromyalgia I could create for you.
Having created some of the only resources around pregnancy and fibromyalgia, I am so proud to have helped to close an information void. In 2013 I found myself pregnant with no idea how I was going to cope. My doctors knew very little. I was too miserable, exhausted and sore to figure out how to find the (minimal) information to help me cope. All of my resources are created to help you get the information you need, fast, and to enact it to have the best pregnancy you can have.

The best of the few articles online…
This is a great article to start with for a complete run down of pregnancy and fibromyalgia.
Some of the suggestions on how to cope:
When planning a pregnancy, it can be helpful for a woman with fibromyalgia to consider:
finding a healthcare team who understand fibromyalgia as well as pregnancy
how to make time to rest
what drug-free ways are there for managing pain
learning as much as possible about both pregnancy and fibromyalgia management
planning a system of help throughout pregnancy and in the first weeks after delivery
I can help you with the second – fifth suggestions in my course!
I would also add to learn about nursing and potential back up options PRIOR to delivery.
