Steinert’s disease and pregnancy

A woman with myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) or Steinert's disease who becomes pregnant may experience a worsening of the symptoms of the disease. However, the situation usually improves once she has given birth.

On the other hand, pregnancy may present more complications in a DM1 patient. These complications include miscarriage, premature delivery, peripartum hemorrhage or preeclampsia.
