SAN MARINO AMONG THE WINNERS OF A STORK FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
March 28, 2019
The San Marino Hospital is one of the 77 centers awarded by "A Stork for Multiple Sclerosis", a prize linked to the care for women on the path to becoming mothers.
The award is given by "Progetto di Onda", National Observatory on women's and gender health, with the sponsorship of AISM, the Italian Multiple Sclerosis Association and SIN, the Italian Society of Neurology, and the contribution of Teva, aimed at improving the accessibility to the services provided by multiple sclerosis clinical centers and to support women affected by the disease in search of a pregnancy. These centers adopt a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of patients who would like to become mothers, offering dedicated clinical pathways and preconception counseling.
This is an award given to clinical centers that offer multidisciplinary services dedicated to the various moments of life of women with multiple sclerosis, in particular of pregnancy and which aims to explain that one can become a mother with multiple sclerosis; multiple sclerosis cannot be transmitted to one's children; the disease-modifying therapies are not an absolute obstacle to the pregnancy project; you can breastfeed after giving birth and there is no increased risk of congenital anomalies in the products of conception.
Dr. Miriam Farinelli, director of the UOC of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Dr. Susanna Guttmann, Head of the UOS of Neurology, received the award today in Milan for San Marino.
