Poorly controlled asthma can affect neonatal outcomes including congenital anomalies, which can be reduced with appropriate asthma care during pregnancy. Although there is a concern regarding the safety of asthma medication use during pregnancy and congenital anomalies, the risk of uncontrolled asthma outweighs any potential risks of controller and reliever medication use. Patient education before and during pregnancy is critical to ensure good compliance to therapy and reduce the risk of poor asthma control.
